Lost & Found

Having a pet go missing can be a difficult and stressful experience. It is our goal to help pets return home. Please use our lost and found pet resources to increase the chance of a happy reunion.

We encourage you to take an active role in finding your pet. We highly recommend you visit our Shelter as well as other shelters and rescue organizations in surrounding areas to search for your animal. You are more likely to identify your lost pet in person.

To prevent your pet from going missing, please always make sure your pet is wearing a secure collar with a license and I.D. tags with your current contact information. In case your pet’s collar were to fall off or be removed, it is also very important to have your pet microchipped. Immediately update these forms of pet identification if you move or change your phone number.
