The Bureau County Animal Control
Department makes available for adoption any stray dogs picked up
where no owner is identified.
Animal Control does not charge
any fees for adoption. However, there are requirements that do have
costs that are performed at one of the local veterinarians and must
be paid by the person adopting.
Rabies shots - 1 year
Annual physical and DPC vaccination

The adopter will sign an
adoption agreement that requires them to care for the dog and have
it spayed/neutered if not already done.
The adopter will need to pick
up the dog no later than the next day, if you are from out of the
area you can pick up the same day.
