Lost a Pet

If your pet is lost, first check your immediate neighborhood and talk to your neighbors to see if they saw your pet. If so, find out where, and let them know that she/he is missing. If possible, have a picture with you to show them. Many times your pet may have stayed close to your home, but a neighbor took her/him in thinking she/he was a stray.

Online/Media Resources

File a Lost Pet Report

Stop by the Shelter

The best thing you can do is to come down to the Animal Shelter and look for them yourself, because there is likely no one that can identify your pet better than you. We encourage owners to stop by the Shelter every two or three days to check for your pet. 

Other Places to Look

It may not hurt to check with veterinary clinics in your area and describe your pet, or bring a picture of your lost pet to the clinics to see if they have seen it. You might also try other area shelters, including the Washington County Animal Shelter by phone at 479-695-3450 or Springdale Animal Services at 479-750-8163 to check with them.
