Some pets have been left at the doors of animal shelters in the Greater Danbury area, according to Ridgefield Police. When an animal is left at the door of a shelter, there is no confirmation of valid rabies inoculations or other diseases and defects the animal may have. The unknown animals can cause risk to employees and other animals.
Police are reminding people that leaving a pet at the shelter is considered abandonment and is not legal.
If you can no longer care for a pet, contact Ridgefield Animal Control at 203-431-2711 and they will put you in touch with someone that will be able to assist in the surrendering of your pet.
