Nash County Animal Friends' Notebook

Do It Right - If you find a pet and take to the Shelter, you should do it within a short time, if you cannot find the owner quickly. Remember, when you find that pet, legally you need to report right away. Owners are looking for that pet. A stray is just an owned lost pet. When a stray is taken to the Shelter, they are kept for three business days, then they will be available for adoption.
