If your pet ends up at the Greensburg & Decatur County Animal Shelter, you have 3 business days to claim it. If it is not claimed within that time, it becomes the property of the Shelter. Please contact the shelter directly by calling 812-663-9081 as soon as you are aware that your pet is missing. (NOT by Facebook or this website).
Claiming Your Pets:
For owners to claim their pets the following requirements apply:
- Owners must provide a valid Rabies Vaccination Certificate. (Indiana law requires owners to keep the rabies vaccination (1yr or 3yr on dogs and cats current). If the rabies vaccination is not current, the owner may go to one of our local vets and PRE-PAY for the shot. Then he or she can bring the receipt to the Shelter, or have the vet fax it to us.
- There is a $10 per night boarding fee
- Other fees may be assessed based on whether the Animal Control Officer picked up the pet, and whether it is determined to be a repeat offense or neglect.
