What if I don’t want to bring a found pet to the animal shelter?
Bringing the found pet to the shelter is the best option for all involved as we urge everyone who has lost a pet to visit our facility. This greatly increases the chances of lost pets being reunited with their owners. If you choose not to bring a found pet to the shelter, you should do everything in your power to return the animal to the owner. This might include posting flyers in your neighborhood, posting ads on Craigslist, Facebook, etc. or even putting an ad in the newspaper. Understand that animals are considered property by law and finding a pet does not automatically constitute you as its new owner.
