I’ve lost my pet, what do I do now?
  • Visit https://24petconnect.com/ for photos of found pets.  You can also upload a picture of your lost pet on this site as well.
  • You must come in to the shelter to identify your pet; it is virtually impossible to identify a pet over the telephone. Bring a flyer with a current photo including your name and phone number for our records. Post flyers in your neighborhood, local pet stores and at local veterinarian offices. Place a lost pet ad in the local newspaper. Also, check neighboring county animal control offices/shelters.
