Dog Redemption

Did you know that LCHS is one of few shelters that does not immediately charge for an animal being brought to the facility? We always give families a 24 hour "grace period" to call or stop by about their missing pets.

As long as you pick up your dog within 24 hours, there are only three things you need:

1. Proof of a current rabies vaccine. If you don't have a rabies vaccine for your dog, you will need to pre-pay for a rabies vaccine at your veterinarian and bring LCHS the receipt. A rabies vaccine keeps your pet and the community safe. It's the law.

2. A current dog license. County licenses are available for purchase year-round at LCHS or the county treasurer's office. A license is required by law. If you purchase a license between January 1-March 31, it is only $10 for a spayed/neutered dog. If your dog has been brought to LCHS and you do not have a county license, you must purchase one (any and all late fees apply).

3. An updated ID tag with a working phone number. Many people who find a lost animal will do their best to reunite it with its family before taking it to a shelter. By providing an ID tag with a phone number, you've given your pet the best possible chance to find its way home. Microchips are a great option but usually it is only animal shelters or vet clinics with the equipment to read the chip so a visible tag is still necessary. If you don't have a tag, LCHS sells them here (the company engraves them and mails them to your home directly).
