|If you have the stray animal in your possession, bring to the shelter to be checked for a microchip and placed in our care. You may place the animal in our care through our front office during open hours, or in our Night Receiving area after hours.
It is illegal to harbor a stray, ( Keep a Stray Animal) and also much more difficult for someone to locate their animal if they come to the shelter searching for their missing pet, as not all people have or utilize social media. The owner may have come looking for their animal at the shelter, and cannot find it if you have it in your care. We do encourage you posting a photo of the animal and the location it was found on the social media pages for lost animals in the area to get the word out and help the animal be reunited with their owner!
