If you've lost a pet...

We encourage you to call or file a report online. Make sure your report includes a full description of your missing pet; we keep the description in a database, along with those of found animals reported to us each day. There is no charge for our lost and found reporting service.

After filing a lost report:

You should also make a personal search of our shelter at 635 W. Roger Road, every day. Our lost and found phone number is 327-6088, ext. 111. You may also attach a digital photograph (JPEG) of your pet at lostandfound@hssaz.org.

You can download a Lost Dog or Lost Cat flier to post in your neighborhood. Fill out the PDF on your computer (Adobe Acrobat Reader required), including adding a photo, and print out what you need to post. You can also download and print out the flier to fill in manually.
  • Call Pima Animal Care Center at 724-7222, and visit the shelter in person at 4000 N. Silverbell Road daily to view all incoming animals. Frequent, personal visits are important; do not rely on phone information alone!
  • Immediately talk to neighbors and post notices throughout the neighborhood and at all major intersections near where the pet was lost.
  • Place a Lost Pet ad on Craigslist's Lost and Found Pets section. As soon as possible, place a “Lost Animal” ad in the Arizona Daily Star at 573-4343. Please also check the found ads every day.
  • If your pet is microchipped, notify the company with which the chip is registered, and be sure your information is up to date.
  • If your pet has been brought to us as a stray, please see our reclaiming fees.

If you've found a pet...

If you have found a stray dog or cat that has identification tags, please call the owner immediately. If the pet does not have identification tags you can take the pet to most veterinary offices, Pima Animal Care or the HSSA to have the pet scanned for a microchip.

Call in a found report to 327-6088, ext. 111, as soon as possible.

Time is critical in returning the pet to its rightful owner. Please be prepared to provide us with as much information as possible about the location where it was found, its health, temperament, and any available information. This will help us in locating the pet’s owner.

Take the following steps:

  • File a found report with our shelter at 635 W. Roger Rd. Our lost and found phone number is 327-6088, extension 111.
  • Post found dog or found cat fliers in your neighborhood. You can download a Found Dog or Found Cat flier to post in your neighborhood. Fill out the PDF on your computer (Adobe Acrobat Reader required), including adding a photo, and print out what you need to post. You can also download and print out the flier to fill in manually.
  • Immediately talk to neighbors and post notices throughout the neighborhood and at all major intersections near where the pet was lost.
  • Place a “Found Animal” ad on Craigslist and Facebook's "Lost and Found Pets of Pima County" page. Please also check the found ads online and in the newspaper on a daily basis.
  • If you find a stray, contact us immediately so we may help search for its owner. Our lost and found phone number is 327-6088, ext. 111.

 

There is a $45 animal care fee to surrender a found pet to the HSSA. If you have found a pet and cannot keep it until the owner is found, click here for more information.

Where do I bring my pet?

If you need to bring a pet to HSSA for admissions, you will want to go to the green Admissions building.
