Reclaim Fees

The Longview Animal Care and Adoption Center holds stray animals for 72 hours to allow owners a chance to find their lost pets. If the animal is not claimed in that time period, it becomes the property of the Longview Animal Care and Adoption Center, and may be made available for adoption any time after the stray hold period.

Owner must provide proof of ownership upon redemption of their pet. There are fees associated with reclaiming your pet.
