Why does it cost so much to reclaim my animal from the shelter?

The fees involved in the reclaiming of an animal offsets the cost of care and feed for the animals.  Also, State Law requires that if any animal is not current on its rabies vaccination, all animals must be current on rabies vaccination prior to being released. To reclaim your pet, call the Ingleside Police Department Non-Emergency number at 361-776-2531 for an appointment with Animal Control Officers.
