Putting Animals Up For Adoption

Impounded animals are held for five days to allow the owner to reclaim their pet. If an adoptable animal is not reclaimed during that time, the animal is put up for adoption to the public.

If an owner surrenders a pet to Animal Control it is made available for adoption that day.

The shelter does not adopt out aggressive, sick, injured, or nuisance animals.

The pets need forever-homes, so please take the time to make sure the pet is right for you and your family.

All adoptions are final. 

For more information on adoptions, please contact the Animal Control Department at (775) 463-6578.
