Cabarrus County Animal Shelter
Monday - Friday, 12 pm - 4:30 pm
Fines for violation of the leash law in section 10-6 of the Animal Control Ordinances, the fines are:
There is no leash law on cats, so there is no fine. However, you must pay boarding and vaccination fees.
As per our Shelter Intake protocol, vaccinations will be administered to each animal that comes in to the shelter as soon as they come in, except in the case of feral or fractious animals that cannot be handled safely. We have no way of knowing whether an animal will be with us for two hours or two weeks or more, so each animal will be vaccinated for their own protection as well as the protection of all animals in the shelter. Please be prepared to cover this cost.
