A: Yes. If you were cited for dangerous or aggressive animal, you should talk to an animal attorney right away.

If your dog gets impounded, you only have 10 days to ask for a hearing to get him released. If he doesn’t get released in that time, you will be responsible for monthly costs of care fees.

A: They are not quarantining your dogs, rabies is the only disease they would “quarantine” a dog for and the limit is 10 days from the bite. After 10 days you’re dog would be dead or extremely sick if it had rabies.

My guess is they told you its a quarantine to get you to hand over the dog(s) but in reality they have more sinister motivations.
