Daily pound fees and applicable city dog tag fees must be paid for in advance prior to taking the dog home.  If your dog has been taken to the local veterinary clinic, the fees charged by the clinic must be paid by the owner of the dog.

Adoption of Dogs


Dogs in the pound are available for adoption if they have not been claimed by their owner within 3 business days. A receipt from a licensed veterinarian for spaying / neutering the animal must be provided to the City Office prior to adoption.
