|Q:||How long will my pet be kept at the Animal Shelter?|
|The Animal Control under city ordinance can hold your animal 48 hours if not licensed with the City and 96 hours if licensed.|
This is why we encourage you, if you have lost a pet, to check with Animal Control every day and check the website as well.
Additionally, microchip scanning is performed on each animal that is brought to the Animal Shelter to help locate owners.
Licensing your pet with the City is really like life insurance as the Animal Control officers will do everything they can to get your pet back to you!
