The Regional Center for Animal Care and Protection has reached capacity for large stray dogs. We have received a high number of intakes for large dogs since the storm on Sunday night and continuing through the middle of the week. Many of these dogs are not microchipped so we cannot quickly contact their owners to reunite them.
All kennels are reaching full capacity at this time in both stray and available large dogs for adoption. If you are missing your dog companion, please come to the shelter located at 1510 Baldwin Avenue, NE, to see if your dog is at the shelter. If you are interested in adopting a dog, please also visit us so that the kennel space can be made available for the additional dogs that are brought in.
The RCACP is your local, tax-funded intake shelter. Dogs that are brought into the shelter must be kept by law for the required stray hold time, which is either 5 or 10 days depending on the information that is brought in with the animal. If you are missing your pet, now is the time to come to the shelter to ensure that your pet is safely reunited with you.
Additionally, the available dog kennels are also full. If you are looking for a new best friend, please come to the shelter and let us help you find that match. By adopting the dogs that are available, it frees up space for stray dogs that are off their stray hold to be made available for adoption as well.
The animals at RCACP are our community animals that need the community to help them. Please show your support by either claiming your lost pet or adopting those animals that are available.
