Lost & Found

The Humane Society of the Tennessee Valley is dedicated to helping lost pets reunite with their owners. Visit our Lost and Found Facebook page to post lost/found animals and read our tips below to help you find your pet.

LOST
• Visit your local Open Admission Shelter
• If your pet is microchipped, call the microchip company to make sure your contact information is up to date and alert the company that the pet is missing
• Contact Local Veterinarian Offices including the Emergency Clinics, if an animal is found injured they may be taken there instead of a shelter.
• Post flyers, especially in your neighborhood and the area the animal was lost from.
• Post a sign in your front yard and tag the window of your car with washable auto paint
• Post ads for free on FindingFido and Craigslist

FOUND

• If you cannot keep the pet until the owner is located, the shelter will keep the animal for a period of 3-10 days in attempt to locate the owner.
• If you decide to keep the pet until owners are found, you must make attempts to find the owners and have the animal for a period of 10 days before deciding to keep the pet or rehome the pet.
• Many shelters have a Lost/Found log, contact shelters in your area to make a listing for the animal.
• Post flyers around the area that you found the animal
