What happens to the animals picked up by Animal Control?

State law requires any animal that is picked up be held for 7 days. This enables the ACO to watch the animal to make sure it is not carrying any diseases and allows the owner to report the animal missing. If the animal is not claimed, the animal is placed into a Humane Society or Breed rescue. We try and deal with all no kill shelters. Animal Control has been working with Purr-fect Cat Shelter for 18 years and they have taken in and placed over 1300 cats/ kittens for us. They are a no kill shelter
