What do I need to do if I have lost/found an animal?

Lost: If you have a lost pet, we ask that you come to the shelter or visit our Lost and Found Page, and make a lost/found report. It is the owner’s responsibility to visit the shelter and reclaim any lost pet before the expiration of the animal’s five-day hold period. 

Found: All found animals must be reported to Animal Services. Finders can bring the animal to our shelter anytime during our regular hours, or they can request that an Animal Services Officer pick the animal up from their residence. If you are willing to care for the animal until the owner can be located, please let us know when you report it and bring it to the shelter or take it to a vet to be scanned for a microchip. Please be advised that you are considered the owner of said found animal after five days and will be required to abide by all Town ordinances and State Laws, including rabies vaccination.
