Lost

  • Go to lost.petcolove.org and choose “I lost a pet.” This is free service that uses facial recognition technology to help reunite lost pets with their owners.
     

  • Go to lostmydoggie.com or lostmykitty.com to complete a lost pet report. This free service will send a flyer to local vets and humane societies in your area.
     

  • Contact your local animal control. See below for a list.
     

  • Visit us Tuesday - Saturday between 12:00pm and 4:00pm to look for your lost pet. Please do not rely on our staff to identify your lost loved one. Please bring a photo or proof of ownership. It is important that you look at least once a week. After a week in our care, the animal will be available for adoption.
     

  • Additional Suggestions: Post to Facebook Lost/Found groups. Actively search your neighborhood at dawn and dusk (times lost pets are most active). Post lost flyers in your neighborhood and notify your mail carrier. Leave food and water outside along with an article of worn clothing or used pet bed.

 

It is our sincere hope that you find your lost pet.
