I Found a Pet

A cat or dog was found on my property:

  - You may hold the animal at your home for the mandated holding period.
  - Submit a Found Pet Report.
  - An Animal Protection Officer will come to your home to check the animal for a    microchip.

I have found a cat or dog roaming loose:

  - Contact Animal Protection and an Officer will come to your location.
  - All stray animals must be initially housed at the Animal Shelter.
      - This allows the best opportunity for the pet to be reunited with it's owner.
  - If not reclaimed by an owner, you can adopt the animal.

Submitting a Found Pet Report:

  - In person at the Animal Shelter Tuesday through Saturday: 9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
  - By calling (804) 556-5302 and selecting option 2.
  - By clicking on this Found Pet link to submit a report by email.
