WCRAS Advisory Board

In 2016, the Board of County Commissioners adopted Ordinance 55.035, to create an Animal Services Advisory Board.  The purpose of the Animal Services Advisory Board is to strengthen the communication between the community and WCRAS, and to allow a public platform to hear updates centered around WCRAS.  The updates may consist of program and service statistics, emerging developments, financial or budgetary updates, events and accomplishments and proposed goals or objectives for the department.

The Animal Services Advisory Board  may offer opinions and make recommendations to the department on the development of short or long term goals, Washoe County Code amendments, educational resources, community programs and policies and procedures.  

Read their first Periodic ASAB Report, which includes collective projects and updates between WCRAS, the community and the ASAB. 

Membership 

The animal services advisory board shall consist of seven members, all residents of Washoe County, one member from each of the following groups:

(a)  a veterinarian or veterinary technician licensed to practice in Nevada, and who is not employed by Washoe County;

(e)  an elected member of the Washoe County Board of County Commissioners;
