Lost & Found

Lost Animals

We understand how scary it can be to lose your furry friend. Please call the Shelter to report your animal's information will so that we can put them on the “Lost Dog” list. You may also bring in a picture of your dog to help with identification. 

Lost dog information is posted for two weeks.

We will attempt to identify and contact you if we believe we have either found your animal or if someone has contacted us with their matching the description. 

You are also encouraged to call and visit the shelter at least every three days to see if they have been brought in. If you live near other counties it is a good idea to contact those shelters to report your information. 

If you find your animal outside of our services, please call us so that we can remove it from our list.
