Lost and Found Pets
Intermountain Humane Society maintains a lost and found pet database to aid in the reunion of pets with their owners. Finders who are unable to house a stray pet must contact the Animal Control Division in the county where the pet was found to schedule a pick-up or drop-off. IMHS is unable to house stray animals but does work directly with local animal control agencies in the event a stray animal becomes available for adoption.
TO REPORT A LOST OR FOUND PET, please call the appropriate animal control agencies and shelters/rescue groups listed below.
We also recommend that you place signs around your neighborhood (or where the pet was lost or found), in local stores, post offices, etc., and place a post on on-line community sites (e.g., www.pinecam.com, www.285bound.com).
IMPORTANT: Local animal control agencies, shelters and rescue groups are required to hold stray pets for only five days. It is crucial that you contact all agencies and shelters in your area as soon as you have lost a pet. Many shelters process a large number of animals so personal, regular visits to each shelter are recommended.
