Any animals found running at large may be impounded by a representative of Newberry County Animal Care and Control and will be housed at the animal shelter. Any animal which is not positively identifiable and which is found running at large will be considered a stray animal, and the shelter will hold that animal for at least 5 days so that the owner can redeem the pet. If the owner of the animal is positively identifiable, then the procedure required S.C. Code § 47-3-540, as amended, will be followed with regard to notification of the owner by registered mail and the impoundment period. An owner must produce positive proof of ownership and a current rabies inoculation and must pay for all reasonable costs of mailing and the established fees for impoundment and care to regain custody of the pet.
