How do I reclaim my animal from the Animal Shelter?
You can reclaim your animal during regular business hours. You will be charged a $20 pickup fee. If the animal is reclaimed within 48 hours of entering the shelter, there will be no boarding fee charged. The boarding fee is $15/day after the initial 48 hours.

Please bring some form of identification (rabies certificate, vet bill, photograph) so that shelter staff can verify the animal is yours.
