For those that are St Charles County residents, you have a wonderful resource at your fingertips for found animals!  Animals found during ‘after hours’ of when our area shelters are closed can be taken to the following location.  The clinic will scan the found pet for a microchip, and if one is found, the owner will be contacted.  The pet will be transferred to the St Charles County or St Charles City shelter, based upon jurisdiction of where the pet was found, which is a fantastic arrangement for our county.  The shelter is where owners will go in search of their missing pet!
