You know your pet better than anyone and the ultimate responsibility for finding it is yours. Calling us is an important first step but with hundreds of dogs and cats coming to the shelter each month, it is not possible to accurately identify a pet over the telephone. The only way to reliably identify a pet is 'in person,' so visit us often!
