Lost Animals 

If you've lost your pet and can't find them by searching the immediate vicinity, here are some helpful tips to try and locate your animal:

Contact your local police department.
Lost pets are often kept at the precinct before they are turned over to the nearest shelter. If the animal appears to be injured, most police officers will take it to a local veterinarian for care.

Visit shelters in your area starting with the closest and working your way out.
Below is an interactive map with contact information for area animal shelters. More information regarding how to find lost pets can be found in the Downloads section of this page. If possible, it is always better to go and look for your pet in person rather than giving a description over the phone.

Post pictures of your animal in public places.
Post pictures of your pet in neighborhood veterinarian offices and on lost pet websites, such as Lost Dogs Illinois and Pet Harbor. The best way to prevent losing a pet is to walk them on secure leashes, never let them roam and supervise their off-leash activity even in the most secure fenced in areas.

If you live in the City of Chicago and lost your pet, please visit the Chicago Animal Care and Control website.
