WARNING:  both AHS & AC&C charge surrender fees & may euthanize any animal under 6 weeks of age, or displaying any health or behavioral issue whatsoever.  The County is required to hold all other animals at least 72 hours, but the Humane Society is not.  They often immediately euthanize pets (and rescues) turned in to them without any chance of being rescued, much less adopted. 
DO NOT take feral cats or kittens to either shelter - they will be euthanized immediately (considered not adoptable):  Current euthanization rate is over 50%
