Found Animal Procedures

Lost Cats


If you have found a cat that appears to be lost, please bring it to the shelter. We can check for a microchip and put the cat on public display so the owner can find their cat when they are looking at the shelter.


Lost Dogs


Found With Animal Control License


If you have found a lost dog and it is wearing a Department of Animal Control license, just tell us if the tag contains a year and also enter the license tag number. We can check our database and give you the phone number of the person who licensed the dog and help get that pup back home.

If you have found a dog that is wearing a license from another agency, even out of state, please let us know. We would like to help reunite that dog with its family as quickly as possible. In addition, if you bring the dog to the shelter, we can check for a microchip and put the dog on public display so the owner can find their dog when they are looking at the shelter.


Found Without Animal Control License


If you have found a lost dog that is not wearing a Department of Animal Control license, please bring the dog to the shelter. We can scan for a microchip, which may provide information about the owner including a phone number and address. In addition, we will place the dog on public view so the owner can find their dog when they are looking at the shelter.
