(A) Any person, who is 21 years of age or older may make written request to the poundmaster for the isolation of a biting animal either in facilities provided by a licensed veterinarian or in a licensed kennel or upon the private premises of the person making such request. If such request is approved by the poundmaster, such biting animal shall not be taken up and impounded, but shall instead be strictly confined and isolated in such veterinarian's facilities or on such private premises for the isolation period.
(B) The poundmaster shall post such private premises, in a conspicuous place thereon, with notice that an animal is being confined thereon to be observed for rabies. Upon termination of the isolation period, animals isolated in the pound shall be released upon payment of proper fees if, in the opinion of any licensed veterinarian or the poundmaster, the animal does not have rabies. Animals isolated upon private property shall be released from such isolation if, in the opinion of any licensed veterinarian or the poundmaster, the animal does not have rabies.
