The LSU Emergency
Animal Shelter stopped accepting animals as of September 30th, 2005
and closed down all operations on October 10th, 2005. Animals that
were left after September 30th, 2005 were considered “abandoned”
and are being conditionally adopted into shelters and foster homes.
Unaltered animals may undergo spaying or neutering depending on
the policies of the shelters that receive them.
All owners who relinquished their pets to this shelter
signed a release notifying them that they must pick up their pets
by September 30th, 2005. All animals that have been conditionally
adopted into a shelter, or with an individual, will be held until
December 31st, 2005 to allow an appropriate length of time for owners
to be reunited with their pets. Should the original owner come forward
and reclaim their pet by December 31, 2005 then the animal must
be relinquished to the original owner.
