What happens if my dog or cat is impounded?
Cats or dogs that are impounded at the animal welfare facility are kept a minimum of three days before they are made available for adoption. It is the goal of Animal Welfare state to return cats and dogs to their owners or to find them good homes through adoption or rescue organizations. Owners that claim their dogs or cats after an initial 24 hours of impoundment are subject to a $20 per day boarding fee.
