AMARILLO -- The Amarillo Animal Control Department wants to officially change it's name.

It wants to be known as the Animal Management and Welfare Department. 

City CounsIl members passed the first reading of an ordinance that would do that.

If it passes a second reading, trucks and signage will be changed, as well.
