Is there a leash law?
All dogs must be on a leash or in a fenced yard at all times. Even if the owner fenced in
a yard.

A cat is roaming my neighborhood. Will you pick it up?
There is no leash law for cats; they must be confined for us to get them. The Shelter
has live traps that can be borrowed free of charge for catching stray considered your
property. If you then bring the cat into the shelter it is considered a release.

My apartment building doesn't allow pets, or I can longer care for my pets.
Will you come to get them?
We do not pick up owned animals. Owners must bring their pet to the Animal Shelter to
release it to us. The release fee is $2.00 per animal for Saline County residents and
$15.00 per animal for non-residents. Please be aware that we cannot guarantee
placement of every animal released to the shelter, and they may have to be
euthanized.

What is the cost to euthanize a pet?
The euthanasia fee is $10.00 per animal for Saline County residents; and $30.00 per
animal for non-residents. Owners must make an appointment for this service.

What should I do if I see an animal that was/has been, hit by a car?
Please call the Salina Animal Shelter; our staff responds to all calls regarding sick or
injured animals within the City of Salina and Saline County.

My pet needs its shots, can I get them at The Shelter?
Rabies shots need to be given by a licensed veterinarian, and cannot be given at The
Shelter. Many other shots can be purchased and administered at home, if not also
given by a veterinarian.
