My animal just bit someone. What happens now?
You are required to report the incident to the Liberty Police Department or Animal Control. An Animal Control Officer will impound your animal at the Liberty Animal Shelter for a rabies quarantine not to exceed 10 days. This quarantine is required by the Missouri Department of Health & Senior Services, regardless of your pet’s rabies vaccination status. You will also be issued a summons to appear in municipal court, so that it can be decided how best to prevent a re-occurrence. Requirements of euthanasia or removal of an animal from its home is extremely rare, especially on a first incidence.
