ANIMAL DESCRIPTION: Data is collected on every animal brought into our care. This data may change throughout an animal’s time with us.
Please use this unique number when referencing animals.
Some animals come in with names. Once animals become available for adoption, VCAS staff/volunteers are free to name animals.
This is our best guess based on body condition, teeth, eyes...etc.
Animals are weighed upon intake and at medical check ups.
If an animal does not have “neutered” or “spayed” preceding their gender, this indicates they are either still intact or have not been verified to be altered.
This is our best guess based on our team’s experience, not a DNA profile.
The date the animal has been impounded into our system.
The date the animal can be adopted out. Animals are usually on a 5 or 10-day hold to give their owners time to find them. Appointments can be made for dogs who have an “Adoptable Date” in the future, however you will not be allowed to meet or take home that dog until that date has been reached.
