Animal Control

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.
