I found a pet. What should I do?
Make a reasonable attempt to notify the owner of the found animal if the owner can be ascertained from any tag, license, collar, tattoo or other form of identification. If an owner can not be located, the dog must be turned into Ogle County Animal Control the next business day.
If the dog has been found during normal business hours with no tag, microchip, license, collar, tattoo or other form of identification or markings the dog must immediately be turned over to Ogle County Animal Control.
