Rescuing dogs and cats which may be injured or roaming at large
Reuniting lost dogs and cats with their owners whenever possible
Promoting adoption or fostering of homeless dogs and cats and
Enforcing regulations that balance the rights of local pet owners with the rights of residents who do not have pets
