LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT0 - The Animal Foundation says that for the time being, they won't be accepting stray animals at its shelter.

The decision was made in order to reduce contact between guests and shelter staff. 

In addition, the Animal Foundation is also temporarily suspending owner surrenders, while conducting owner-requested euthanasia and return-to-owner services by appointment only.  

The foundation is recommending that people who find lost pets use social media such as Nextdoor, Facebook to unite the pet with their owners, or to post the pet on the lost pet search website 

Owners can search to see if their pet has been brought to the Animal Foundation, and make an appointment to claim their pet. 

An appointment can be made by calling 702-955-5932. The foundation says that proof of ownership, such as photo of pet, veterinary records, or microchip number, is required.
