Reuniting Stray Animals with Owners
What is this service?
Animal Services works hard to match impounded and found animals to lost pet reports filed with the division. Many times, our staff is able to reunite animal owners with a missing pet before it ever makes it in to the shelter.
Animal Services also maintains an on line listing of all the animals currently in our shelter and owners looking for a lost pet are encouraged to check there daily. Because descriptions of animals may vary, however, it is important for the owners of lost pets to come into the shelter and look for their lost animal frequently.
Animal Services also provides a number of other resources and information to aid pet owners in finding a missing animal. For more information, check out our Lost and Found Animals page.
