If you have lost an animal we suggest that you send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org detailing where the animal was lost, breed, coloring, animals name and your name and contact information along with a recent picture (full body shot preferred) of your missing pet. You will also need to come to the shelter as soon as possible to see if we have your animal. We recommend that you visit the shelter frequently to check on your lost animal as new animals come in daily. We also suggest that you provide flyers for your neighbors and post them in nearby subdivisions to get the word out about your missing pet. To reclaim your lost animal please bring proof of ownership (vet records and pictures of your animal) to the shelter. We are open Tuesday – Friday from 11 – 5 and Saturday 11 – 4.
We accept stray/found animals from Stephens County residents during our normal shelter hours of Tuesday – Friday 11 – 5 and Saturday 11 – 4.
Owned animals, that you no longer can care, can also be turned in to the shelter. We do ask for donations to help cover the cost of caring for these animals, but a donation is not required to surrender your animal. We will do everything we can to find a new home for your animal, but we cannot guarantee we will be able to do this, as we have a limited amount of cage space and we are required to keep stray animals for a certain period of time so our ability to house owner surrendered animals is sometimes limited.
If you have lost or found a pet please follow the instructions below to get the word out so the pet can be reunited with the owner as quickly as possible. Links to LostMyDoggie.com, LostMyKitty.com, and PawBoost.com are located at the bottom of the page.

It is always best to go to the shelter to check in person. When you go, take a flyer with a good picture of your pet. It is always easier to recognize a pet that someone is looking for, as long as we have a photo for reference. Also, make sure there is a good contact phone number on the flyer. It isn’t helpful to provide a number that doesn’t have the voicemail set up!
