Sec. 10-24. - Retention of animals; adoption of animals. 

Animals brought to the shelter by either citizens or staff shall be retained according to the following guidelines:                                             

(a)

Animals which appear to be adoptable via breed or condition, or appear to have had reasonably good care, or in good health, or having collars or exhibiting other signs of ownership shall be retained for a minimum of five working days, beginning the day after being turned in or picked up, before being placed for adoption or humanely destroyed.               

(b)

Animals which are judged to not be adoptable, or are sickly in appearance, or are malnourished, or having no collar or other signs of ownership shall be retained for a minimum of three working days, beginning the day after being turned in or picked up, before being placed for adoption or humanely destroyed.

In rare cases of animals being near death or judged unsalvageable, or diseased to an extent of posing a great harm to other animals in the shelter, or at a stage in life or health condition whereby it would be inhumane to continue their suffering, the animal control director, with the concurrence of the shelter's veterinarian, may determine the appropriate time of retention.

The animal control director has the right to deny/refuse any adoption at his discretion.
