Reclaim Your Pet

welcome to the

Town of Edgewood

Reclaiming An Animal

If your animal is at the shelter and you wish to reclaim them, you can stop by during normal business hours and fill out a Reclaim Agreement.  

Required documents (if the animal's records are not on file)

  • Current copy of the animal's rabies vaccination provided within 10 days
  • Proof of sterility provided within 30 days

Reclaim Fees

  • The base reclaim fee is $20.00 and increases by $10.00 with each additional reclaim within the calendar year.
  • Your animal must be microchipped if it does not already have one.  Microchipping costs $15.00 per animal.
  • If your animal is still intact, you must pay a $25.00 sterility deposit, which will be refunded to you upon providing a copy of the animal's spay/neuter.
  • It is mandatory for your animal to be fixed unless your animal is purebred with papers, in which case you may purchase an intact permit for $50.00.
Surrender Fee

  • If you choose not to reclaim your animal, you must pay a minimum surrender fee of $25.00.
