Sometimes, good samaritans visit our facility with an animal they claim is a rescued stray. It is very important that the finder verify the exact location where the animal was found so that it can be confirmed to be within the City of Rosenberg’s jurisdiction. Finders must present a valid ID confirming their City of Rosenberg address.
We try to keep families together in the City of Rosenberg, so our team will first ask questions to understand the reason for surrender. It may be an issue we can help resolve! If this isn’t possible, the quickness with which we can admit the animal will depend on the owner’s circumstances and the shelter’s inventory status. Owners may be placed on a waiting list and contacted when space becomes available. On the date of surrender, a $50 fee will be assessed.
Upon intake, all animals are checked for a microchip, and if registered, owners are contacted immediately and notified they are able to redeem their pet. If unclaimed within three business days, the animal is put up for adoption. All dogs and cats are vaccinated and de-wormed as soon as they arrive. Our team strives for positive outcomes with all of our animals, whether that is through adoption, reunion, or rescue transfer. Euthanasia is reserved only for those who are irremediably suffering or considered to be a true threat to public safety.
Individuals or families interested in adopting a pet are asked to come for an on-site meet and greet. If they would like to move forward, a quick adoption counseling session with a staff member is the next step along with an adoption contract featuring a questionnaire. Once the contract is approved, a $99 adoption fee for dogs or $49 adoption fee for cats will be assessed. This fee covers the animal’s spay/neuter surgery, full vaccination panel, and microchip.
