Lost and Found

Unfortunately, we often receive telephone calls from clients who have lost a pet or ones that have found a pet for whom the owner cannot be located. We do not have the room to house all of the lost animals; however we would like to help bring the lost and found together. Jump to the Lost and Found Pet listing.

You can call us and leave your information with our receptionist, post a picture and profile at the clinic or use the form below to post it on this web page. We would also be happy to scan any found animals for a microchip so that those who have a chip can be quickly returned to their homes.

Scan This About Microchipping

Sadly, thousands of pets are lost or stolen every year and more than 70% of those never come home. 33 % of pets will get lost at least once in their lifetime.

A tiny microchip may be the difference between lost and found.

Microchipping is the newest means of pet identification. A tiny computer chip with a programmed identification number is imbedded in a biologically inert material and individually sterilized and packaged. The device is the size of a grain of rice and is injected by a veterinarian into your pet, under the loose skin over shoulder blades. The procedure is simple and no more painful than a vaccination. The microchips do not cause any adverse tissue reaction and remain inert until a special scanner is passed over the chip to read the identification number. The chip identification numbers are filed with a national registry that is accessible 24 hours per day and 365 days a year. All humane societies, animal shelters and veterinary hospitals are equipped with scanners. Through this system lost pets can be quickly reunited with their families. Microchipping is the only way to provide a permanent, non-alterable or easily removable means of identification that cannot be lost or fade with time.

Don’t let your pet’s picture end up on our lost and found site, have him or her microchipped.
