It was a natural progression for the kennels to become the local animal care facility for lost and found pets in the area. Municipalities are required by law to hold a pet for 72 hours or 3 business days to allow an owner to be found. Although I do my very best to find the owners of these pets there are times when an owner does not come forward. When a pet is not claimed by their owner, I ask the municipality to sign ownership of the pet over to me. I do my best to have the pet spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and dewormed. These funds come directly out of pocket which is why I ask for adoption fees to help recover some of the costs.
