Hazardous Animal Quarantine

LCHS will provide quarantine services for animals that are under a police ordered quarantine after a bite incident.

Quarantine fee is $200. LCHS will not provide the 3 required veterinary exams. The transportion, expense, and scheduling of these appointments will be considered the responsibility of the animal’s owner. It will also be the responsibility of the owner to ensure the police and/or health department receive the appropriate paperwork from the veterinary office after the third exam.

Animals may be surrendered after the bite quarantine is over for additional fees but will not be considered adoptable due to the bite history. Owners wishing to surrender their animal after quarantine will need to schedule this with LCHS staff in advance.
