(Corcoran, Calif.) The Corcoran Police Department Animal Control Officer responds to the public's complaints related to dogs, animals running at large and investigates all dog bite complaints. Dogs and animals which are caught running at large are impounded locally at the City of Corcoran kennel temporarily and then transported to the Avenal Animal Shelter for additional holding if not claimed by an owner.
The Animal Control Officer investigating animal bite complaints determines if the incident requires some type of isolation for the animal. Animals that are unlicensed or lack their appropriate vaccinations are isolated at the Avenal Animal Shelter for 10 days or at a veterinarian's office of the animal owner's choice for five days. If the bite animal is licensed and properly vaccinated a home isolation may be possible if no other pets reside on the premises. Home isolations are for a period of 10 days and the animal control officer will check on the animal at least one time during the isolation period. If the animal has bitten on a prior occasion, home isolations are not allowable.
