What happens to the animals that are picked up by ACOs?
Effective February 1, 2011, all animals picked up by ACOs are taken to the Animal Services Center located at 1207 Hatton Road. They are then held for 3-5 days. After that point, they are either placed up for adoption thru Animal Services, transferred to the Humane Society of Wichita County, approved rescue groups or humanely euthanized.

Animals that show some type of ownership: collar, tags or microchip are kept 5 days while every effort to find their owners is made.

Animals that come in without a collar, tag or microchip are held for three days to give their owners time to locate and reclaim them.
