If you have lost your pet, the best approach is come to the shelter to file a lost report in person and walk through our facility to identify your animal. You may also fill out a report online using the form below. We will take lost reports over the phone, but in-person or the on-line form are your best options. We suggest you come in as often as possible to check if your pet is here. Animals come through our doors 24/7, and due to the volume we may be unable to verify by phone if your pet is in our shelter. Only YOU can indentify your pet. Photos of your pet are most helpful to us along with a detailed description of your animal. After filling out the form below, you are encouraged to follow up by emailing a photo or photos to firstname.lastname@example.org. Colorado state law requires an animal be held for 72 hours after arrival. The Longmont humane Society holds an animal for a period of 5 days after which time the animal becomes legally ours if not reclaimed. This is why it is also important to check our adoption floor, as your pet may already be available for adoption.
If you have found a pet, you may still call us with information about the animal and to check if we have any matching lost reports. If the animal is wearing a city license, we can trace the owner’s contact information. If you are unable to keep the animal in your care, we can instruct you how to proceed. Depending on where you reside, you may to bring the animal to us, or call an animal control officer in your area. We are also able to scan a found pet for a microchip, as many dogs and cats are not wearing collars and tags for identification.
We accept stray pets from the following jurisdictions ONLY:
