What should I do first?

If you have lost or found a pet, we encourage you to immediately post a current picture with description to the Lost & Found and Pet sections of Craigslist and the free Lost & Found section of The Daily Courier.

If an animal arrives at YHS and it has a license, ID tag or microchip, we immediately call the number listed. PLEASE keep your information current on your pet's ID tag and microchip. Often, collars and tags fall off when an animal is stray. Affordable $20 microchipping services are available Monday through Friday at the Lost & Found Pet Center and $15 on Fridays at the YHS Spay/Neuter and Wellness Clinic.

Animals that arrive with identification are kept 5 days before being put up for adoption. Animals without identification are kept 3 days before being put up for adoption.

I found a lost pet.

If you have found a stray animal and cannot identify the owner, you may bring it to us. The stray fee for cats is $20. We ask for a donation when relinquishing a stray dog. Bring the animals to the Lost & Found Pet Center which is the building with a brown roof nearest Prescott Lakes Parkway. Directions here.

If you live in Chino Valley, bring the animal to Chino Valley Animal Control. Their website is here.

I'm looking for my pet.

We ask that you come in and look at our lost pets in person. The last thing we'd want is to misunderstand your phone description and overlook your best friend. Lost dogs and cats are kept in the Lost & Found Pet Center building. On the YHS campus it is the building with a brown roof closest to Prescott Lakes Parkway. Directions here.

If you find your pet at our facility, please be aware you must pay the city, county and YHS fees before your pet is returned to you.

To reclaim your animal, please bring a recent photo of you with your animal, their vet records, rabies vaccination certificate and license (if canine.)  We must have proof of rabies vaccination to release the animal to you.
