Following an ongoing review of Caldwell County Animal Control policies and procedures, the policy pertaining to rescue organizations has been adjusted. The revised policy gives Animal Control the option to rescue more animals that are at a lower risk of causing harm to others.
Some of the requirements a rescue organization must meet to receive animals from Caldwell County Animal Control include being a 501(c)3 organization, having liability insurance, and signing transfer documentation.
The policy change impacts the case of the 2-year-old beagle. The dog will be released to a rescue organization if the owner does not come forward.
