If I find a stray, what should I do?

If you have found a stray dog or cat, please contact Animal Care and Control and report it. Please make sure you call the animal control agency representing the city or area you have found the animal. If you cannot bring the animal into our facility, we ask that you hold that animal for 24 hours in hopes the owner will be found. Only then will we send an Officer to pick up the found animal. If you wish to keep the animal, you may but only if the owner can contact you to retrieve their lost pet, otherwise we prefer the animal stay with us until the 3-day mandatory waiting period is up. Then you may adopt the animal yourself. Please note Animal Care and Control does not pick up stray or roaming cats.
