Stray Animals

Stray animals received at the Emporia Animal Shelter are sheltered for a minimum of three full days (not including the day they arrive). Animals from Lyon County are the only animals accepted at this time.


If the stray animal is wearing an I.D. tag or has a microchip implant, every effort will be made to contact the owner. If a pet is not reclaimed by its owner, it may become a candidate for adoption. To recover some of our operating expenses, the owner of a lost pet is required to pay a return-to-owner fee.
