Lost & Found
Petco Love Lost
Washington County SPCA is proudly joining forces with Petco Love – formerly known as the Petco Foundation, a national non-profit working to lead and inspire change for animals – and animal welfare groups across the country, on a shared mission to help reunite lost pets with their families should they ever go missing. According to industry statistics, sadly, one in every three pets will go missing in their lifetime.
Petco Love Lost is a new, searchable national database that uses patented facial recognition technology to make finding lost pets quicker and easier. This simple-to-use tool will be easily accessible to participating animal organizations nationwide, as well as any pet parent or person who finds a lost pet. Uploaded photos of a missing dog or cat are immediately scanned to determine whether the lost pet is at a participating shelter or with a neighbor in the community.
Found Animals Currently In Custody
THE BEST METHOD: Come to the Shelter!
Come to the shelter and look for your pets. We receive many animals every week and although we can look for you, you know your pet best! He or she knows you best, too! What you may call a Boston Terrier mix may look like a French Bulldog mix to us. If you message us on Facebook, we will encourage you to come to the shelter and look as only YOU know your pet.
Hours: Monday 8 a.m. - 12 p.m., Tuesday-Friday 11 a.m. - 6 p.m. and Saturday 11 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Go to PetHarbor.com. Enter your zip code, then check the shelters you want to search. Follow the directions to search for your pet.
Or check out Finding Rover, a facial recognition app for your pets. Go to FindingRover.com and register your pet.
Ask your neighbors, postal delivery workers, and anyone who regularly goes through your neighborhood. Many times people find lost pets and keep them at their homes rather than bringing them to the shelter.
Post an Announcement
Use social media such as Facebook and Twitter. Place an ad in your local paper or ask your vet, businesses or schools for their permission to post signs, etc.
Place a lost poster of your pet in your yard!
A lost poster in your yard will let neighbors and passerbys know your animal is missing, so if they see it, they'll know where to bring it.
