The City has an animal control officer who is available to pick up animals. The officer also operates an animal pound at 2002 E. Division Street, behind the Liberty Utilities wastewater treatment plant. The pound is accessible off of Division Street.
Hours of Operation:
10 a.m. – 4 p.m. [Closed for lunch 12:30 p.m. – 1:30 p.m.]
10 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
8 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Pet owners who surrender animals to the pound must pay a $25.00 surrender fee. Animals brought in that were stray do not require a fee.
Pet owners must pay a $10.00 per day board fee and a $10.00 pick up fee to claim an animal delivered to the shelter by the animal control officer.
The pound investigates all options relative to keeping or euthanizing animals and works jointly with the local humane society 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. Local residents, as well as people from other states, adopt many of these animals.
The adoption fee for dogs is $45. This includes DAPPv, Bordetella and rabies shots.
The adoption fee for cats is $10. This includes rabies and HCPCH shots.
If you need to have an animal picked up by animal control, please call the non-emergency dispatch number at 417-777-3911.
