I lost my pet; what should I do?

Contact the animal shelter immediately for instruction on how to post your lost pet on PetHarbor.  Also, visit the shelter in person frequently, preferably daily, to check for your pet. 

We hold animals for five days to allow owners to find them, after which they may be adopted, transferred or euthanized. 

Descriptions vary tremendously; it is important to look for your pet personally, instead of calling us to see if we have a match.  We always recommend posting lost ads in PetHarbor, Craigslist and other websites to reach anyone that may be holding your lost pet.  Be aware that we do not guarantee the accuracy of these sites and are unable to check them for pets that might be in our care. It is always the responsibility of the owner to check the shelter for their lost pet.
