Finnish animal protection law obligate cities/counties to have a Service for lost and found pets. During 15 days, owners are allowed to pick up their pet by paying the service fee by cash or credit/debit cards. If owner is not been found during 15 days, animal shelter is allowed to find a new animal friendly home for a pet or make the decision about euthanasia. Despite the law, we want to emphasize that Boondock’s is willing to find new homes no matter how long it will take.
