Jones County Animal Control Adds Fee for Dropoffs | News
Jones County pet owners who no longer want their animals used to be able to surrender them at Animal Control at no cost.
But now that service comes with a price.
It's $35 per dog, $50 for a mother with litter, $40 for just a litter and a $20 fee to have animal control pick up your animal.
The fees were implemented last week.
Animal Control Manager, Jennifer Giddens, picked up Matilda and her litter of nine puppies.
That would've cost the owner $70.
The money collected from surrenders will go toward Veterinary care.
"A lot of the times they'll come in with internal parasites and skin conditions of various natures," Giddens says.
The Jones County Commissioners voted three to one to implement the new fees.
