What to do if you’ve lost your pet
City Ordinance requires that all stray or abandoned animals go to Huntsville Animal Services to give the owner a chance to reclaim their pet. GHHS does not accept strays. To find your lost pet, you can:
VISIT CITY OF HUNTSVILLE ANIMAL SERVICES to view all of the lost & stray pets.
Visit every 2-3 days until your pet is found. Their hours: M-F 9AM-5PM & Sat 9AM-3PM; located at 4950 Triana Blvd Huntsville, Al 35805.
POST ON FACEBOOK Post a picture and description of your pet and post on your profile. Please add when and where you last saw them. Please post on our profile on Facebook and we’ll let our fans know!
CHECK YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD Talk to neighbors and children, asking if they’ve seen your pet. People will be very willing to help.
PUT UP LOST POSTERS Place in your neighborhood entrances, local stores and veterinarian clinics. Be sure to keep it easy to read. Example: Lost Cat, Black & White, 256-XXX-XXXX, REWARD!
CHECK LOCAL NEWSPAPERS for found pet ads, place a lost pet ad.
CHECK CRAIG’S LIST AND OTHER WEBSITES
People who find lost or found pets often post on Craig’s list or surrender the pets to a local rescue for adoption. Sometime’s they make there way to the lost and found section of these popular websites: Craig’s List, Lost Pet USA & Pet Harbor.
WHEN YOU ARE REUNITED WITH YOUR PET, immediately place a properly fitted collar with an identification tag (phone numbers/address) on your dog & cat. Collars with tags are your pet’s ticket home!
