The committee also advises on field operations for animal services. The committee will not have any management responsibilities and will not direct staff.

The committee meets on a quarterly basis on the second Wednesday of the month at 5:30 p.m. 

Prospective members should have an interest in animal care and welfare and must reside in Eagle County.
