Claiming a Lost Animal

Once an owner and animal are matched, be prepared to:

  •     Visit the Animal Control Facility to verify that it’s the correct animal.
  •     Prove ownership by showing veterinary records or a picture.
  •     Answer how the animal got lost.
  •     Pay applicable impound, citation, boarding, veterinary, and licensing fees.
  •     Arrange an inspection of a fenced yard (only necessary if the animal escaped from a fence).
