My pet is missing. What should I do?

Time is critical. It is imperative you file a lost report immediately, which remains active for 10 days, and come to the shelter to:

1. Look through the found reports of stray animals being held at other locations.

2. Look through the public kennels to see if your pet is already here.

3. Ask to see animals in out-of-view rooms. Injured, ill, or scared animals are kenneled in a separate area.

HSPPR does its best to match lost reports with animals coming into the shelter. However, we receive over 70 animals each day and it is you, the owner, who knows your animal the best and can identify them the fastest. 

Stray animals are held for 5 days before HSPPR takes ownership. On day 6, the animals may be made available for adoption. In some cases, seriously ill animals or animals with severe behavior problems may need to be humanely euthanized.

Please note, fees are incurred for reclaiming your pet, including impound fees, board fees, and other fees associated with ensuring your pet meets rabies vaccination and licensing regulations. Fees increase daily, so the sooner you come, the better.

2. Call us to pick up the animal. Due to local ordinances, we are unable to pick up stray cats and cannot pick up stray dogs outside of the city limits of Colorado Springs, Fountain or Monument. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Call (719) 473-1741 and we can dispatch an Animal Law Enforcement officer to your address. Please note wait times may vary depending on the current number of cases officers are responding to.

3. Temporarily care for the pet in your home. Please be sure to file a found report immediately, which remains active for 5 days. If the animal is wearing a license or rabies tag, we may be able to trace the owner. Call (719) 302-8723 to speak with a customer service representative. In addition to completing the found report, we suggest you also check with neighbors and area veterinarians, hang signs in the neighborhood, place ads in local papers and post notices on social media sites such as Craigslist.
