If your animal is wearing tags which can be traced to you Animal Services will make every effort to call you to let you know that your animal was impounded. But please don't rely on this; many animals lose their tags or someone takes the tags off before they are picked up. Make sure that if you move or change telephone numbers that you call and update your tag information. If your animal is impounded at Animal Services you will be required to pay a $25 impound fee and $10 board for each day the animal is here in order to reclaim the animal. You will also be required to show proof of a rabies vaccination and county license. If you do not have this information you will be required to have it done at the shelter, as long as the veterinarian is available to vaccinate your animal. The 1-yr rabies vaccination is $10, then you will be required to purchase the Hernando County Animal License, which is an additional $10 for sterilized animals or $30 for unsterilized animals. If you are unable to afford those fees on top of the impound/board fees you will receive a citation from a Hernando County Animal Services Officer that allows you to provide proof of vaccination and license within a specified time period. Additionally, there may be other citations issued unless you qualify for one of the incentives offered to responsible pet owners. If a citation is issued you will have the option of paying the fine within 30 days or contesting the fine in court.
