Halifax County Animal Control
Animal Control Officers will pick up stray dogs and cats on public property or on private property when reported. If the animal has tags, every reasonable effort is made to contact the owner to come and pick up the animal at the shelter. It is County policy that the animal is to be held at the shelter for a minimum of one week. If the owner is not located the pet is offered for adoption or put to sleep. ID tags help locate owners. In some cases, wanted pets have been destroyed at the shelter because the owner was identified too late.
