Reclaiming Impounded Dogs

dog31If the owner of an impounded dog can be reasonably ascertained, every effort will be made to contact the owner.  However, many dogs are impounded without identification.

It is imperative that the owner of a missing dog visit the shelter at least weekly in an effort to find a lost dog.

Owners may call the shelter and inquire as to whether their dog has been impounded. However, it is in the best interest of a missing dog that owners visit the shelter because many dogs have very similar characteristics.

Impounded dogs may be reclaimed at the shelter:
Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Select Saturdays, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The fees to reclaim a dog are as follows:

  • $30.00 Impoundment fee first impound/second impound within 12 months $45/ third $60
  • $  5.00 Per night board/ $10 night for quarantined
  • $12.00 Prepayment for legally required rabies vaccine, if not current.Owners must have a photo identification to reclaim an impounded pet.  Impounded animals brought to the shelter as strays are held for 72 hours for an owner to reclaim.
