Everyday animals get lost. Sometimes it's an unfortunate accident which allows them to get away. Other times it's the result of human carelessness.
Often an animal control officer sees a dog wandering in a neighborhood and impounds it or "picks it up". Many times the owner assumes the dog or cat "ran away" or "was stolen". They don't consider the possibility that their pet is at the shelter.
If you lose a pet, call Animal Care and Control and report it. If we have impounded your dog or cat, you can get it back right away. Hours of operation for all services are M-F 8:00 to 5:00 and Saturday 10:00 to 2:00. You may reach the department at 520-509-3555.
If we don't have your pet, we will compare your pet's description with animals that are impounded or called in as found.
