Animal Services

What happens if a pet is not claimed by its owner?

WCRAS holds each stray animal for five days before it becomes available for transfer.  WCRAS partners with Nevada Humane Society, Northern Nevada SPCA, as well as a variety of other approved rescue groups to transfer adoptable animals into their care.
