If you cannot text, please fill out a FOUND DOG REPORT HERE. Please note that reports are added to the website every day from 9:00 am to 5:30 pm.

Follow this checklist --

  • Check for a microchip by having the dog scanned at any local shelter or vet (for free!).
  • If a dog is wearing a tag with a phone number, call and send a text. People tend to be more responsive to texts than phone calls from unknown callers.
  • Check Nextdoor for the neighborhood where the dog was found and post a picture of the found dog.
  • Check Craigslist for lost dog posts under "Lost & Found" and create a found pet ad.
  • Check these local lost pet Facebook pages and post the dog's picture.
  • Report your found dog to other local animal shelters
  • Print small flyers to put on doors in your neighborhood and large flyers to post at major intersections in the neighborhood.
  • Register with Finding Rover, a free facial recognition app that scans the features of a dog's face. With the app, you can take a photo of the dog and report the dog as being found.
