We have run the Alavus and Kuortane area animal shelter since 2000.
Strays must be collected within fifteen days. Otherwise the ownership of the animal will be transfered to the keeper of the shelter who will try to find a new home for the animal. A veterinarian will decide what to do with weak animals.
Fee when animal is collected is 25 €. There is also 20 € fee for each extra day the animal stays in shelter and veterinarian fees if necessary.
Animal shelter is open 9.00-18.00
ALL PETS SHOUD HAVE A COLLAR WITH OWNERS PHONE NUMBER.
What to do if your pet goes missing:
First notify the nearest animal shelter about the missing pet. Start searcing immediately and also inform your neighbours about the missing pet.
If the pet cannot be found you can post notifications on stores noticeboards and call the local radio for example. Also inform other animal shelters in the area. You can also visit the www.karkurit.fi website where you can post notication of the missing pet. The site also has information on found pets.
