Lost or Found a Pet?
 

If you have LOST your pet

  1. If you have lost your pet, you should immediately file a Lost Report with the Montgomery County Animal Services and Adoption Center:

Online: An online lost report can be filled out at Pet Harbor. On this site you will select to "Register to receive emails" from the Montgomery County Animal Services and Adoption Center (our shelter); you will receive daily email updates listing all pets found in your area that match your pet's description. Be sure that you are entering all descriptors in the proper field. Be sure to upload a recent picture of your pet.

OR

At the Center: Bring in a picture if you have one available so that we can better match up your pet with the animals at the shelter.

OR

By phone: (240) 773-5900

Note: If giving a report by phone be prepared to give a detailed physical description of your animal, however it is always best to come view the animals currently at the Center in personPlease provide customer service representative with a recent picture of your pet, via email if possible.

  1. Visit the Center at least every other day.

Even if you have filed a report online or by phone and searched the database of stray animals, we recommend coming to the Center often to look for your pet.
