NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -The Orleans Parish Communication District, in coordination with the City of New Orleans, held a press conference Wednesday to announce the upcoming partnership with the Louisiana SPCA (LASPCA) for animal control call taking and dispatching services.
Beginning in January 2021, calls for animal control services will be managed and dispatched by emergency communications specialists at Orleans Parish Communication District. Residents and visitors who wish to request animal control services may do so by calling 9-1-1 for life-threatening animal control emergencies, or 3-1-1 for non-emergency animal control requests.
Also expected with this new partnership are new in-vehicle technology upgrades for animal control responders, faster response times, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week communications support, and more.
