Do you adopt out animals from animal control?
Yes our adoption fees are as follows: Dogs/Puppies $65 Cats/Kittens $45 These fees include 1st parvo/Distemper VX (dogs), worming, rabies vx and spay/neuter, upper Resp. VX (cat). It is required that each adopted shelter animal be spayed/neutered according to the adoption contract.
What if the pet I adopted from animal control gets sick?
We always recommend anyone who adopts to take the animal to a vet for a complete health check as soon as possible. Although we have a vet that visits our shelter on a regular basis , it is impossible to guarantee the health of any animal. We often don't know the medical history of the animals we receive, but still want them to have a home. It is our heartfelt intention that everyone receive a healthy animal. In the unfortunate circumstance that an animal who has been adopted becomes sick, we will either give an adoption refund or a gift certificate to adopt at another time.
How long does a stray animal stay at Animal Control? How long does the animal stay in adoption?
When an animal is picked up by animal control or brought to the shelter by a citizen, that animal is held for at least 7 working days. if the animal is wearing an ID or a rabies tag we immediately try and contact the owners. the 7 working day period (State law is only 72 hours) will allow the owner time to claim the animal. After that time if the animal is not claimed , and is healthy and friendly, he will go to the adoption area. There is no specific timeset for the animals period of stay simply because we try as long and as hard as possible to help these animals find new homes.
It's to sad to visit Animal Contro! How can I help without having to go to the shelter.
For all of us it is a very difficult job being around so many animals that we know not all will get homes. Often the love and the care the animal receives at our shelter is the only kindness alot of these animals have ever seen. We encourage people to visit and ask questions, we have an excellent volunteer program that is beneficial to both the volunteer and the animal.
