Impounded Animal Information & Release Procedure

Animals will be impounded by the Ripon Police Department Animal Services Unit if found running at large and are unlicensed or the owner information is unavailable, or inaccessible due to staff availability.

Generally speaking Animals running at large captured between 8:30 AM and 4:30 PM Monday through Friday will be returned without impound if they are licensed and/or AVID chipped.

Impounded Animal fees increase each time an Animal is impounded in a one-year period, up to the 3rd impound. (More specific information about fees can be found on the fee-schedule).

 

Print and complete the Impounded Animal Release Form and bring it to the Police Department along with the required fees to begin the Animal Release Process.
