Humane Society of Chilton County FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)



Category: Main -> Animals taken to the shelter

Question
·  What happens to animals picked up by animal control?
·  What happens to animals surrendered by their owners?
·  Does the shelter work with rescues?

Answer
·  What happens to animals picked up by animal control?

Animals brought in to the shelter by animal control officers are placed on a 7 day "stray hold."  During those 7 days the animal's owner has the chance to locate and reclaim their animal. 

At the end of the 7 days the animal becomes the property of the shelter and can be adopted, rescued, or euthanized.

·  What happens to animals surrendered by their owners?

Animals surrendered by their owners become the immediate property of the shelter.  They can be adopted out, rescued and while it's a last resort the animal might be euthanized.   You need to remember, when you surrender your animal you give up all rights to that animal.

·  Does the shelter work with rescues?

The Humane Society of Chilton County has a dedicated team of rescue volunteers and fosters.  They work with a network of approved rescues both instate and outside of Alabama.    The shelter encourages rescue in an effort to save as many of the county's unwanted animals as we can.
