Search Tips

We recommend beginning your search as soon as possible for the best chance of being reunited with your lost pet.



-Search high and low

If your pet is found by an Animal Control Officer in Arvada, Edgewater, Golden, Lakewood, Westminster, Wheat Ridge, or unincorporated Jefferson County and has a license tag, they will make every attempt to return the pet directly to you before bringing your pet to the Shelter. If your pet is not wearing a license tag, the officer will bring the pet to Foothills Animal Shelter.

If your pet is found by a community member, they might take it to a shelter or organization they are familiar with – not necessarily the closest location. Therefore, please check our Shelter even if you live outside of Jefferson County.
