Lost Pets

Time is of the essence when you are trying to find your lost pet, especially if your pet is not wearing a Broward County Rabies Registration Tag or is without a tattoo or microchip containing identification information. We are required to hold lost pets with identification for five days (not including holidays and when the shelter is closed) and animals without identification for three days, in the hopes that they can be reunited with their owners and avoid euthanasia.

Come to our shelter daily to look for your pet and complete a Lost Report. Even if your pet was wearing a Broward County Rabies Registration Tag or other identification when it was lost, it is important to visit our Adoption Center to search in person. Please click here for our Address, map and hours of operation.
