Broken Bow City Pound Policy
We would like to clarify the rules of our pound. If we have a stray in the pound for more than a couple
days and the owner comes in to pick it up; there is a $20.00 pound
fee (to offset the cost of food and the upkeep of the pound). If the dog is in our pound for 5 days and no one has come forward
to claim it then it is our policy to try and find a new family for the dog. If after an additional 5 days we cannot
find a home for the dog then our policy is that we have the animal euthanized.
We DO NOT WANT to do this and work very hard to find homes for all of our strays. We have made great contacts
with other shelters and have wonderful volunteers willing to foster and transport and we are very thankful for their support!
It is also the policy of the Broken Bow Dog Pound that we do not take strays from outside of the city limits of Broken
bow because our space is limited.

Don't pass stopped
When you are driving
and see a vehicle stopped at the flashing yellow lights at a school crossing, STOP your vehicle and do not pass the vehicle

are passing vehicles that are stopped for flashing yellow lights, putting students in danger. If a vehicle is stopped at the yellow flashing lights, assume
that there are children crossing the street. Yellow lights are activated during hours when children are likely to be going to and from school. If
you see the lights flashing, be prepared to stop. If
someone is already stopped in front of you, stop your vehicle behind them. Passing
a vehicle that is stopped at a school crossing is a very dangerous situation and can result in a citation for the driver who
