Animal Control in Pawnee wasn't one of the most effective branches of Pawnee's government. Leslie Knope referred to them as "a bunch of burned out morons".

In Animal Control , Chris Traeger fires the whole department due to their incompetence. After failing to find a suitable new director, April Ludgate suggests to dissolve the department into the Parks and Recreation department. Chris and Leslie then appoint her Deputy Director of the new sub-department.
