The shelter is required to hold stray dogs and cats for a minimum of 72 hours for owners to claim. After the
dog or cat is made available for adoption, there is no set time that we hold them. This all depends upon the animal's temperament,

to an hour for an interested person to get cash, written permission from their landlord, or to bring a family member to view
the pet. Animals will be microchipped and spayed or neutered before being released to the adopter.
