If You Lost Your Pet

Your pet may have been brought any local shelter. You can file a lost pet report, and you should check with our facebook page daily for new lost and stray arrivals. If you see an animal that fits the description of your lost pet, you must visit the identified shelter to reclaim your pet.

You may not recognize your pet from the pictures and descriptions posted online. Consider visiting a few shelters to see for yourself if your pet is there. Find out shelter hours and locations.


  • Look for your pet right away. Check everywhere, especially places that your pet has been before (for example, parks and neighbors' yards/bushes). Search your neighborhood during the day AND at night.
  • Put signs around your neighborhood, in local stores (especially pet stores and grocery stores), and in veterinarians' offices (where allowed) for a 3-mile radius. Your signs should be large enough to be read from 10 feet away.
  • Tell your neighbors (including all neighborhood children), your postal carrier and sanitation workers that your pet is missing.
  • Visit Petfinder.com to check listings of local shelters and rescue groups in your area. The website will post ads for your lost pet.
  • Keep searching for at least a few months. People sometimes find a pet and keep it for a while before taking it to a shelter or abandoning it on the street where they found it. Lost pets have been reunited with their families after long periods of time – don't give up.
