Why did the Fond du Lac Humane Society stop taking in strays on February 15,2023
As a part of the contract, the Fond du Lac Humane Society has accepted strays or lost animals from the City, at no additional cost to the city or the Good Samaritans who brought them in. We did that to make it convenient for Good Samaritans and to minimize the police department time and effort. It is our position that stray and lost animals are the responsibility of the City and, therefore, the City must contribute to the associated costs. Without a contract with the City, we would be required to charge those Good Samaritans to cover the fees we would have received from the City contract.
