I called the GA Dept. of Natural Resources to offer assistance with the Serval they picked up, but they said they have a facility already that they usually send cats to.
Before they called me back with that information, I called Animal Control there to ask if they still had possession of the cat, and they said a number of people have already called saying that it was their cat and they were coming to claim the cat. She said she was sure that one of them really would be the owner and that the cat would go back with them.
When DNR called me back I said, tongue in cheek, that there must a lot of loose servals if one is at the pound, ready to go home with his owner and one has been sent to a rescue facility all in the same day. I was told, "You would be amazed."
