Animals collected as strays are registered through Marshall Police Department and housed in the City of Marshal Animal Impound. Found animals are impounded pending owner reclaim or being adopted. Unclaimed animals are available for adoption. There are no health histories or guarantees as these are stray animals. Adoption fee is $25.00 per animal. Make an appointment to reclaim or adopt an animal by calling the Marshall Police Department at 507-537-7000. Minors may not reclaim impounded animals.

Notify Marshall Police Department when you discover your pet is missing. Be prepared to give a description that will help officers identify an animal as your pet, such as:
• Name, Age and Sex
• Breed or Mixed Breeds
• Colors, Patterns or Special Markings
• Collar and Tag Information
The City of Marshall has a micro-chip reader. This tool is a recognized way of identifying animals in the pet industry. Unexpected separation of pet and owner can be difficult for all. Micro-chipping is an accepted tool used by shelters, impounds and Humane Societies to determine ownership. If your pet is impounded it will be checked for a chip. This does not replace the need for city licensing but is another assurance of being able to find your pet should it become lost.
A livetrap for trapping cats only is available for a 3-day period. Be prepared to supply bait. To make a request call Marshall Police Department, 507-537-7000.
