Lost & Found Pet Resources

Lost Pets Tips:

  • Make sure to go in person to area shelters at least every other day as shelters only have a stray hold of 36 hours to 5 days max, depending on the shelter. They then place animals up for adoption or even euthanize after the hold time is over. You must go in person & speak with shelter staff for assistance.  Pictures posted online are not always good, clear pictures. Dogs can look completely different after just a day or 2 on the streets, especially if they require grooming. Going in person to look is really the only way.

  • Make sure to check shelters outside of your local area as well as people tend to take animals to shelters they are familiar with.

  • Next, check Pet Harbor as they are the most up to date and area shelters upload their intakes to their system, usually within hours.

  • If your pet has a registered microchip, contact the Microchip Company to create an alert/flier.

  • Post signs around your area.  

  • Put a sign in your front yard in case someone is driving around looking for signs or the owner. 

  • Check out the lost pet resources below to help in your search efforts.


Found Pets Tips:

  • Take the animal to a vet or shelter to be scanned for a microchip as soon as possible.

  • Drive around the area looking for the owner or signs.

  • Use the same resources as you would when searching for a lost pet to create fliers and post found pet info and pictures to help find the owner.

  • Please try to hang onto the dog for a few days to give the owner time to locate their dog.

  • As a last resort, take the animal to the local shelter.
