To check whether your dog is at the Glencoe Animal Shelter, you can visit their site at www.glencoeanimalshelter.com. If the dog has a tag, they will contact the owner. All dogs picked up by the Glencoe Animal Shelter are scanned for a microchip and their picture is posted on the website.
If you do not claim your dog after 5 days, it is put up for adoption. The Glencoe Animal Shelter finds homes for all dogs, with the exception of vicious or sick animals.
