Redemption Fees for Lost/Stray Animals

The following fees are charged upon redemption according to the location where the animal was found. 

All fees are set by municipal code, and are intended to help cover the cost of impounding stray animals.  HSSW is not able to waive or adjust fees without authorization from the Manager of Clark County Animal Protection & Control.


Microchipping and licensing your pet can greatly reduce the length of stay if they are brought to the Humane Society as a stray or lost pet. Microchips and licenses allow our staff to quickly identify and contact the family of a lost pet - getting them home safe and sound as soon as possible.
