Adoption Rates
A significant aspect of the Animal Shelter’s operation is the importance of the spay/neuter program, as it relates to our adoptable animals. All animals adopted from the shelter are spayed or neutered before going home to their owners. Through close ties with Liberty veterinarians, costs for approved adoption applications are as follows:

Spayed/ Neutered Animals
  • Dog - $80.00
  • Cat - $55.00

Owning Pets in Liberty
  • All dogs over the age of four months must be vaccinated against rabies and licensed with the City.
  • Licenses are available at the Liberty Animal Shelter, all local veterinarians and at City Hall. Proof of vaccination must be provided. The license tags must be displayed on the dog's collar at all times.
  • All female dogs in heat are required to be confined within a building, in a way that they will not be accessible to other dogs except for planned breeding. Liberty euthanizes hundreds of animals every year due to unplanned and unwanted litter animals so owners need to do their part to prevent unwanted litters.
  • There are limitations to the number of animals that one can own. No owner shall own, keep or harbor more than a total combination of four (4) dogs and/or cats over the age of four months.
  • The City Code states that animals should be properly cared for. Animals of any species must be under restraint at all times, and dog owners cannot allow their dogs to become a public nuisance by barking or howling.
  • Animals, which are a physical threat to humans or other animals, or are wild by nature, are prohibited under the code. An animal owner must follow special provisions once an animal has bitten an individual or another animal.
  • It is unlawful to keep, harbor, own or in any way possess any pit bull dog within the limits of the City of Liberty. "Pit bull dog" is defined to mean:
    • The bull terrier breed of dog
    • Staffordshire bull terrier breed of dog
    • The American pit bull terrier breed of dog
    • The American Staffordshire terrier breed of dog
    • Dogs of mixed breed or other breeds than listed above which is known as pit bulls, pit bull dogs, or pit bull terriers
