The Fort Smith Police Department has a contract with the Sebastian County Humane Society to
house all animals impounded by the Animal Control Division. The Sebastian County Humane Society is located at 3800 Kelley Highway in Fort Smith.
When a dog is impounded, it is taken to the Human Society where an intake form is completed and the dog is placed into a pen.
There is a licensed veterinarian on staff at the shelter to look after the dog’s care while it is impounded. At the shelter, the animals are fed and
watered by Humane Society staff.
Owners of dogs picked up by Animal Control can contact the Sebastian County Humane Society at (479) 783-4395 to inquire about their dog.
After paying an impound fee imposed by the shelter, the dog may be picked up; that is, unless the dog has been classified as either dangerous or vicious
by Animal Control.
