Upon the impoundment of any animal under the provisions of this title, the animal control officer or shelter shall give written notice to the owner, if the owner is known, of the impounding of such animal and the terms upon which said animal can be redeemed. The notifying of any person over the age of 18 who resides at the owner’s domicile or mailing the notice to the address given to the city at the time the animal was licensed shall constitute actual notice to the owner. If the owner of said animal so impounded is unknown, and cannot be reasonably determined or located, no notice of impound shall be required, and the city and/or the animal shelter shall be entitled to take such action allowed under the city code as if notice were given. There shall be no obligation to determine the owner of such animal if the animal is not wearing a license or other identification or is not microchipped. (Ord. 6529 § 1, 2014; Ord. 6424 § 1, 2012.)
