Atteberry, who has worked for the Town of Apple Valley for nearly 11 years, started out as a part time typist in Animal Control. Her role was expanded quickly as her skill set became apparent and was promoted to full-time Animal Control Technician in 2007. She was promoted to her current position in September 2015.
Many of these animals live throughout the continental United States and need no special description. Opossums or “possums,” raccoons, skunks, rabbits and jackrabbits are familiar to most people. Quail and roadrunners pose no threat to humans or their property. Other high desert wildlife can be a threat to domestic animals and small pets, and Animal Control wants all Apple Valley residents to be informed and alert.
Wald, Ruhnke & Dost Architects was retained by the town of Apple Valley to design a new shelter to replace the existing facilities for Apple Valley Municipal Animal Shelter.
The new 36,000-square-foot shelter was designed to accommodate the shelter, shelter staff, animal control, and code enforcement. The new single-story building incorporates many concepts of sustainable design, including day lighting, low VOC paints and sealants, a cool roof, provisions for using gray water for irrigation and the use of native drought-tolerant landscaping. This shelter also utilizes radiant heating in the kennel floors for the comfort of the animals and has a light, open mall feel to present the animals to the public for adoption.“In 2013, the Town of Apple Valley began providing animal sheltering services to the County of San Bernardino, which increased our live intake of cats and dogs. We are pleased with the positive results and will continue to provide programs that increase live release rates and reduce euthanasia,” said Gina Schwin-Whiteside, Animal Services Manager.Congressman Paul Cook's office joined Apple Valley Animal Services at the Town's Municipal Animal Shelter this week for an Animal Care and Control appreciation lunch.
