ANIMAL CONTROL CONTACTS WITHIN ELMORE COUNTY
In general stray animals are held at our facility for a minimum of seven days in hopes their owner will come to reclaim them.
Section 3-7A-7 of the Alabama Code states:
This basically means that after the state seven day minimal hold period that pet becomes the property of the sheltering agency for appropriate disposition, so please, please, please, keep a collar and rabies tag as also required by Alabama law on your pet at all times since we cannot call you if we don’t know who your pet belongs to. And if your pet does become lost – don’t delay in calling/visiting your local shelter and others in your area to look for your pet. Very often owners can be reunited the same day their pet becomes lost if they just get in contact with their shelter.
Please also note that pets that are surrendered (signed over) by their owners are not required to be held for any length of time and may either be immediately placed for adoption, held and evaluated for adoption, transferred to another adoption agency or euthanized.
If you have found or see a dead animal on a roadway, honestly that animal is no longer an Animal Control issue. To see if that animal can be removed from the roadway, please call the appropriate office below depending on the location of the carcass.
