Kennel Care

The County Pound is located at the Agricultural compound on Washington Boulevard in Crescent City. We maintain the shelter building and grounds and make special efforts to make our guests as comfortable as possible during their stay. Animal Control Officers wash, clean and disinfect each kennel daily as well as feed, water, medicate, and interact with the impounded animals.


There are 24 regular kennels, 4 quarantine kennels and a separate 4-kennel isolation room for ill dogs within our shelter building. State law requires us to hold impounded animals 5 full working days before they can be rehomed. To facilitate the return of lost animals to their owners, a microchip detecting scanner is used on all dogs entering the shelter. Donations of surplus dog food and animal care products from the public help tremendously with level of care we can provide to the animals.
