Ed Jamison is the Director of Dallas Animal Services. The animal situation in Dallas has been the center of scrutiny over the years due to large roaming dog populations, high profile dog attacks, and low positive save rates from the shelter. With over 34,000 dogs and cats entering DAS yearly, Dallas is the 4th largest intake in the United States. Prior to coming to Dallas, Ed was the Chief Animal Control Officer for the City of Cleveland, Ohio. In his time serving Cleveland, Ed made a push to redefine the way Animal Control functions, and re-brand the public’s perception of the industry, along with “pit-bull” type dogs. The award winning, trademarked CITY DOGs Cleveland Adoption and Volunteer programs are flourishing and being copied throughout the country.
