Please complete a Lost Report below.  Reports are also available at the shelter.

We encourage you to come to the shelter and ask to personally see the dogs brought in as “strays.”  This is particularly important if your pet is a mixed breed because descriptions can vary widely.

If your pet is microchipped, contact the microchip company to see if someone has called in your pet’s information.  If your contact information is out-of-date, a shelter or vet might be trying to find you.

Check websites such as IndyLostPetAlertCraigslistThe Herald Bulletin, and Friends For Paws.

Place an advertisement in the paper.  Include a picture.

Post your pet’s photo at all major intersections, nearby markets, pet supply stores, or any place where someone who might be sheltering your pet would go for supplies.

Advertise at all nearby veterinary clinics. If your pet has been injured, a “Good Samaritan” might bring him to the nearest vet for treatment.

If you’ve lost your cat, focus your search around your home and neighborhood.  Frightened cats look for small nooks and crannies to hide in, so checking under decks and porches and inside bushes is a good place to begin your search.
