Daily Kennel Census
Beginning in October, 2014, a Daily Kennel Census will be included in the staff report. The Census will show how many animals were in the shelter at the beginning of the day and at the close of business.
Change in Impound Records Report
Starting this month, the Impound Records will no longer indicate the owner’s name but will reflect the animal owner’s general residency (IE: County, Belvidere, Capron, etc.) This protects the individual’s privacy and allows for more information to be shared regarding where animals are being brought in from and returned to.
Local Adoption Events
Periodically, BCAS will be presenting adoptable dogs at the Farmer’s Market on Saturdays in downtown Belvidere until season’s end.
Information Question of the Month
Q) What do BCAS officers check for when an animal is received in the field or is brought the shelter?
A) BCAS staff will make a photographic record as well as document the breed, color, gender, approximate age, any collar, any tags and scan the animal for any microchip. The animal is also evaluated if there are any medical needs in which case the animal is transferred to the department’s licensed veterinarian. If there are injuries that appear life threatening after hours, the animal is transported to the Animal Emergency Clinic of Rockford. The ultimate goal is to locate the owner so that the pet can be returned to them.
