Placing An Animal For Adoption
The following guidance is used by Animal Control staff to determine when to place an animal for adoption:
- Animals turned into the Osceola County Animal Control Shelter by the owner are available for immediate adoption.
- In order to give the owner time to claim his/her animal, stray animals without a collar are held four working days before being placed for adoption.
- In order to give the owner time to claim his/her animal, stray animals with a collar are held seven working days before being placed for adoption.
- After the appropriate four or seven day period the animal becomes the property of Osceola County Animal Control.
All adoptions are on a first-interested party gets first opportunity basis.
In order to adopt an animal you must be a minimum of 18 years old.
All dogs that are adopted must obtain a rabies shot.
Every individual that adopts a cat must leave a $25 security deposit.
Every individual adopting a dog must leave a $35 security deposit.
Security deposits are returned when the animal is spayed or neutered and receives required vaccinations within the time specified at adoption.
