Pet owners who surrender animals to the pound must pay a $25.00 surrender fee. Animals that are brought in that were stray do not require a fee.
Pet owners must pay a $10.00 per day board fee and $10.00 pick up fee to claim an animal that was delivered to the shelter by the animal control officer.
The pound will investigate all options relative to keeping or euthanizing of animals and works jointly with the local humane society in order to adopt out all animals possible. Animals brought to the pound that are eligible for adoption are listed at www.petfinder.com under Bolivar City Pound. Many of these animals are adopted by residents of other states as well as locally.
Adoption fees for dogs is $45. This includes DAPPv, Bordetella, and rabies shots.
Adoption fee for cats is $10. This includes rabies and HCPCH shots.
