Here are the steps to take to find the owner or your lost dog. There is also a list of the most used and viewed resources you may not have tried at the bottom. Do what applies to your situation: 1. If this happened in your neighborhood, put a large sign in your yard that says LOST or FOUND dog with basic information. Communicate with neighbors. The more people that know the better. If LOST, also put your recently worn clothes outside, so the dog can pick up your scent. 2. If you FOUND a dog, have the dog scanned for a chip at a vet, 24/7 Emergency animal clinic, Animal Control or Humane Society. Make sure they scan the WHOLE body as chips can move. (Petco and Petsmart are not good choices as they may not carry a universal scanner and may miss picking up a chip.) Make sure the dog is secured first with leash and collar so it can't bolt when taking for a scan. It's free and you shouldn't need an appointment. Call ahead of time to see if they have a "universal" scanner. 3. If you LOST your dog and it is chipped, alert chip company IMMEDIATELY and make sure all of your contact information with them is current/correct. 4. If the location lost or found is not in your post, please be sure to add city and major cross streets, as well as, the date and time it happened. 5. If it happened in Maricopa County, call Maricopa County Animal Care and Control to report found or lost dog at 602-372-4598 from 8 am to 5 pm daily, so they can add all information to their database AND also use this link to add dog to their lost/found map.: https://www.maricopa.gov/162/Lost-Found-Pet in case the owner is searching on that site. 6. If the dog was lost or found in another county, please contact that county's Animal Control to report as lost or found. 7. Put SIGNS up throughout the area it took place because some people are not on social media. Get bright poster board from the dollar store & a fat marker, cut into 4 pieces, write LOST or FOUND DOG, phone # and a picture. Keep it simple since drivers only have seconds to see it. 8. If you can't catch the dog OR need additional help finding your lost dog, contact Hartt Animal Rescue and trapping for help.: 602-601-2604, https://azhartt.org/ Hartt form to fill out to trap stray animal: https://azhartt.org/strayhelp/ Hartt form to fill out to get help with your lost pet: https://azhartt.org/programs-services/lostpethelp/ 9. EMERGENCY: If you found a sick or injured stray and need an ambulance, or if you suspect an animal is being abused or neglected, call the Arizona Humane Society's emergency Field Dispatch at 602-997-7585, ext. 2073 between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. After hours, please contact your nearest emergency animal clinic. 10. If you FOUND a sick or injured stray and it is NOT an emergency, contact Arizona Humane Society at 602-997-7585. 11. If you think your dog was STOLEN, call nonemergency police. Keep in mind, dogs are usually considered property and you may only be able to file a police report. However, this will help for legal purposes. 12. If you FOUND a deceased dog, call your city's deceased animal pick up. 13. IMPORTANT: If you FOUND a dog, be sure to verify proof of ownership including pictures and vet records before handing over to anyone. Unfortunately there are people who search these sites who will try to claim as their own without proof looking for a free pet, will ask to foster or adopt before owner is found without connections to a rescue. They can be very convincing. They may just repeat specific information YOU added in your post and picture, but only want to harm the dog. If anyone offers to foster or adopt if owner is not found and you don't know them personally, PLEASE ask a rescue to help make sure the person is legit. 14. IMPORTANT: If you LOST a dog, be careful of people trying to SCAM you. They will contact you and "say" they have your dog and want money from you. If you are offering a reward, do not provide the reward until the dog is in your possession. 15. If you found a dog AND you contacted Animal Care and Control and/or the Arizona Humane Society and they cannot pick the dog up today or if it is after hours and you have no way of keeping the dog safe, call nonemergency police or bring the dog to a police department.
