Great River Rescue will post all animals that are taken in as strays on this page. We ensure all stray pets are not adopted out until they have been available at least 10 days. This includes days spent at the township or city pound. Animals can be reclaimed for $50 plus $20 per day up to a maximum of the adoption fee for a dog or cat. Owners who wish to reclaim must prove ownership and may be asked to submit an adoption application. Great River Rescue reserves the right to decline reclamation if the owner can not provide adequate care for the animal.
