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:
- Look through the found reports of stray animals being held at other locations.
- Look through the public kennels to see if your pet is already here.
- 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 fatest.
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 be 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.
