Pets can be released to family, or put up for adoption, WITH CONSENT OF OWNER. They are contacted in jail and must sign a release. Pets are kept up to a month on behalf of the owner; longer stays can be arranged. Animal Control loves animals too, and seeks to keep pets with their owners. These pets are vaccinated upon entry, because proof of vaccine is hard to come by. Often, pet food is gifted to the owners.
