Animal Redemption

Process


If you would like to redeem your animal from our shelter we will need proof of ownership. An example of ownership could be pictures of you and the animal together, veterinarian records, etc. We will also need proof the animal is up to date on their rabies vaccination and has a current dog license. If you do not have these, an additional fee will be charged to gain compliance. 

Fees include but are not limited to Impound, Boarding, Vaccination, and Veterinarian costs and dog license (purchased through the Treasurer's Department).
