Contact the Animal Control Department as soon as possible and leave your name, address, home phone number, work phone number, and a description of your animal.
Search the area near your home. Post signs in your area and post on local social media to help get the word out that your pet is lost.
Remember, you are your pet's best friend. Provide identification. If your pet ever does get loose, the license can help ensure a safe return. A cat or dog picked up and placed in the City Animal Control Impound Facility that is not wearing a current license is deemed unowned. An unowned animal or "stray" is held for 72 hours (three days) and is then open for adoption.
