"It's a matter of priorities," Columbia City Administrator Jay Baksa said. "Do you put enormous time and resources into animal control or do you spend it on other priorities within the police department?" For more information, call the animal services of Columbia, South Carolina.
The community service officers who handle Columbia's stray and abandoned dogs are busy. So far this year, the city has impounded 339 canines. They keep the dogs for five days. If no owner comes forward, the dogs are shipped to the South County Animal Shelter in San Martin. Richland County animal control says it will continue to help with domestic animal issues, but not with South Carolina wildlife problems.
This year, 193 dogs have been reunited with their families; 146 have been sent to the shelter, at a cost of more than $14,000 to the city. Columbia residents can not take stray dogs, cats or other creatures to the San Martin shelter. Animal and carcass removal services in Richland County is dedicated to helping South Carolina and Columbia.
If you live in Columbia and want to get rid of an animal, your only option is to haul it the Humane Society Silicon Valley in Santa Clara.

Richland County animal services in Columbia, South Carolina, declined to comment on the matter.
