Strays at KCHA
All dogs over 6 months of age brought to our shelter as strays are held for 5 days to allow owners reasonable time to reclaim their pet. After their 5 day stray hold they will be made available for adoption!
Interested in adopting a dog once they're off stray hold? We offer reservations! This reservation ensures you are the first person allowed to adopt the animal after their stray hold is over. This reservation fee does not go towards the dog's adoption fee.
