What to do if you have Found a Dog

If you have found a dog, please treat that animal the same way that you would want someone to take care of your beloved dog. Make every effort to find the dog’s family before you even consider taking an animal to Animal Care and Control Services (AKA the County Shelter, Rabies Animal Control, Dog Pound) or the Humane Society. Important:: Animals taken there may be exposed to diseases they may not be vaccinated against, many dogs experience personality changes due to the stress and many others are euthanized when their families do not come to claim them. Clare Rhoads, Animal Rescue Volunteer 1996

Dogs have a much better chance of finding their owners through your active help! Most dogs belong to someone living in the nearby neighborhood so it is best to keep them close to where they might have been lost and look for its family. Below is a checklist of what you can do to help. Clare Rhoads, Animal Rescue Volunteer 1996


____Put signs up at the major access roads to the neighborhood you found the dog in. (Be careful to follow city sign ordinances. Some cities will not allow you to place signs on city property (Eg: stop signs). Clare Rhoads, Animal Rescue Volunteer 1996

____Ask your neighbors if they have seen the dog before. Tell everyone your number is posted on your signs and encourage them to call with any information. Clare Rhoads, Animal Rescue Volunteer 1996

____Walk and drive through your neighborhood asking people if they have seen or recognize the dog. Clare Rhoads, Animal Rescue Volunteer 1996
