Lost a Pet?
When You Lose a Pet
If your pet was wearing a current license or I.D. tag, we will make every effort possible to notify you and reunite you with your lost pet. If your pet was not wearing a tag, it is very important that you personally visit our animal shelter. You may have to make several visits as, every day, new dogs are picked up by our animal control officers or by concerned citizens and brought into the shelter.
Lost dogs and cats have been known to wander some distance. We do not pick up cats, unless they are deceased, injured, or involved in a bite case. Cats are brought in from the public due to the no-leash law. When you come to our animal shelter, be sure to ask to see all the found animals, including any that are being held for observation. Ask about any injured animals that may have been taken to a private veterinarian or that were sadly picked up dead off the street.
Safety tip - when describing your pet, leave out one identifying characteristic and ask the person who finds your pet to describe the animal before you give information. It could be a pet-recovery scam and they may not really have your pet. Be wary of people who insist you send them money for the return of your pet.
If you are fortunate enough to find your lost pet, be sure to attach a license and identification tag to his/her collar. And don't forget to remove all posted flyers and consider a microchip for your pet.
