Stray Animal Protocol

All stray animals brought in by Animal Control Officers or private individuals are photographed and posted on the day of intake. They are held for a legally mandated minimum of three (3) days before being medically altered or made available to adopters/rescues. To reclaim an animal you must be able to prove ownership and pay the reclamation fees listed below. After 5 business days the animal legally belongs to the Jackson Animal Care Center and will be spayed/neutered and vaccinated. At that point the full adoption fee of $120/dog or $80/cat must be paid. All animals will be posted for 7 days from date of intake. Animals can be reclaimed during regular operating hours Monday through Saturday. We are closed on Sundays.
