County seeks members for animal services advisory committee

Contact: Nathan Lehnert, Animal Services Field Manager, 970-328-3647,

Jan. 31, 2020 – The Eagle County Board of Commissioners is seeking community members to fill two vacant positions on the Animal Services Advisory Committee. The group provides input on policies and priorities regarding animal sheltering and services.

Applications are due by Feb. 14. Interviews with Animal Services staff will take place in late February, and finalists will meet with the county commissioners in early March. The two terms vary from one to two years and will be determined during the committee meeting on March 11.

The Animal Services Advisory Committee is comprised of nine members with expertise and interest in animal care and welfare. Focus areas include the physical and behavioral health of animals; housing and transport of animals; spaying, neutering and population management; facility improvements; public health; and consideration of other topics as needed. The committee does not have any management responsibilities, nor does it direct staff.

Meetings occur bi-monthly on the second Wednesday of the month. For more information, contact Nathan Lehnert or Rhiannon Rowe at Animal Services at 970-328-3647 or visit to fill out an online application.
