Please remember! We do not provide animal control services for San Angelo and we do not operate the San Angelo Animal Shelter.

 

About lost pets at the San Angelo Animal Shelter: When a stray pet arrives at San Angelo Animal Shelter it is processed and examined, treated for fleas and ticks and placed in a kennel for the public to view. Stray animals are allowed 3 days for identification by owners. If a pet is not identified, the animal is made available for adoption or euthanized. If you have had an animal in your possession for three days, you are legally considered the owner of that animal. If an "owned animal" is taken to the shelter it may be euthanized immediately if space does not permit it to be made available for adoption. The city's animal shelter euthanizes over 9,000 animals annually.

 

Things To Do if You've Lost Your Pet:

#1: Contact local animal shelters and animal control agencies. File a lost pet report with every shelter within a 60-mile radius of your home and visit the nearest shelters daily, do not just call to see if they have your animal.

#2: Search the neighborhood. Walk or drive through your neighborhood several times each day. Ask neighbors, letter carriers and delivery people if they have seen your pet. Hand out a recent photograph of your pet and information on how you can be reached if your pet is found.

#3: Advertise. Post notices at grocery stores, community centers, veterinary offices, traffic intersections, at pet supply stores and other locations. Also, place advertisements in newspapers and with radio stations. Include your pet's sex, age, weight, breed, color and any special markings. When describing your pet, leave out one identifying characteristic and ask the person who finds your pet to describe it. Make a lost pet flyer - Click Here for a template you can use to make your flyer. Be sure to list them online at www.HelpMeGetHome.com .

#4: Be wary of pet-recovery scams. When talking to a stranger who claims to have found your pet, ask him to describe the pet thoroughly before you offer any information. If he does not include the identifying characteristic you left out of the advertisements, he may not really have your pet. Be particularly wary of people who insist that you give or wire them money for the return of your pet.

#5: Don't give up your search. Animals who have been lost for months have been reunited with their owners.
