Even if your pet isn't at our shelter right now, we may still be able to help reunite you with them. Please use the links below to report your lost pet to us. These forms are processed through the Pet Harbor software program that we also use to keep track of found pets and animals in our shelter.


By registering your lost pet online, the system will email you when there are potential matches added by our staff or by finders. Follow instructions, including clicking submit at the bottom and then "activating" the registration via the email that they send you.
