NW Florida Animal Control Facility in Chipley can handle a large volume of animals we collect, but the distance to travel to that facility (80 miles, round trip) each day – and sometimes several times a day – can be costly in personnel time as well as fuel & maintenance costs. In addition, our Animal Control personnel must retrieve animals from the Chipley facility, once pet owners in Walton County learn of their lost pet housed in the Chipley facility. They either must retrieve their pet on their own from the facility or request that the Animal Control personnel bring the animal back to Walton County for them.
Residents that wish to adopt a dog or cat from our area must also travel all the way to Chipley. The likelihood, unfortunately, is that many of these collected dogs and cats are euthanized because of the inconvenience of traveling so far to get the animal.
The second facility we use is Alaqua Animal Rescue in Freeport, but their facility is limited on how many animals they can receive. Thus, most of our collected dogs and cats are taken over to Chipley.
Chemical control is the use of specially formulated herbicides to kill plants. (Registered with the U.S. EPA and the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services)
Biological control is the use of imported insects, fish and other organisms which eat or infect or otherwise keep the invasive plants at low levels indefinitely. Before releasing such organisms, the USDA and the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services must verify that insect bio-controls have proven to be host-specific. Mechanical control is the use of specially made machines to "harvest" invasive plants by cutting and collecting them and transporting them to a place to decompose. Physical control includes using hands, draw-downs (water removal), flooding, burning, dredging and shading to control invasive plants. Integrated control is the use of two or more of the above methods.
