Did you find a stray animal?

If You Found a Stray Dog 

Under state law, stray dogs must be held for a manda­tory stray period of 48 hours in order to pro­vide guardians ade­quate time to locate their lost pets. This is best achieved by allow­ing munic­i­pal­i­ties to per­form the func­tion of impound­ing stray dogs as is required of them by law.

If you find a stray dog, you have the fol­low­ing options:

  1. Take the dog to the local munic­i­pal­ity or police depart­ment where you found him/her. The major­ity of pet own­ers will first con­tact their munic­i­pal­ity when look­ing for a lost pet.
  2. Care for the pet at your home while you look for the owner your­self. If you take this route, be cer­tain to:
    1. Call the munic­i­pal­i­ties in the area around where you found the pet. Let them know the descrip­tion of the dog, the date and loca­tion where he/she was found and if s/he was wear­ing a col­lar or has any unusual mark­ings that might make it eas­ier for the dog to be reunited with the owner.
    2. Have the dog scanned for a reg­is­tered microchip either by your munic­i­pal­ity, the HLLC or your local vet­eri­nar­ian. If the pet is chipped, con­tact the microchip com­pany and pro­vide the chip num­ber so the com­pany can trace the chip back to the pet’s guardian.
    3. Post fly­ers in the neigh­bor­hood and in very pub­lic places. Place an ad in the paper and check other posted ads for lost pets who might match the description.
    4. Post the dog’s infor­ma­tion on the Report a Lost or Found sec­tion on this page.
  3. If you choose the sec­ond option, and the dog is not reclaimed by a guardian dur­ing the req­ui­site 48 hour hold­ing period, and you decide not to keep the dog, then you may con­tact the HLLC to assess whether we can admit the pet into our care for adop­tion placement.

If You Found a Stray Cat

Cur­rently, State Law in PA requires that munic­i­pal­i­ties be respon­si­ble for stray dogs, how­ever there is no law address­ing respon­si­bil­ity for stray cats. There­fore, HLLC will accept stray cats from find­ers on a space avail­able basis.

If you find a stray cat, you have the fol­low­ing options:

  1. Con­tact the local munic­i­pal­ity or police depart­ment where you found him/her. The major­ity of pet own­ers will first con­tact their munic­i­pal­ity when look­ing for a lost pet.

    3. Post fly­ers in the neigh­bor­hood and in very pub­lic places, includ­ing your per­sonal social media pages. Place an ad in the paper and check other posted ads for lost pets who might match the description.
    4. Post the cat’s infor­ma­tion on the Report a Lost or Found Pet por­tion of the page.

  4. You can make an appoint­ment to have the cat spayed or neutered and vac­ci­nated through our Well­ness Clinic. Click here to learn more about the HLLC’s Well­ness Clinic.

Thank you so much for help­ing an ani­mal in need. Please con­sider being an advo­cate for our community’s cats, and ask your county, state and local rep­re­sen­ta­tives to pro­vide Ani­mal Con­trol Ser­vices for lost and stray cats.

  • Wubzy

    WP_20140708_001She’s a big ole spoiled fat cat.

    Large grey and black tabby, white mouth and chin area with a white tuxedo. Belly is basi­cally white with an orangish tint where blends from the grey and black. She has white front toes and is front declawed. Also has a clipped ear, she may still have balding/thin spots on her back­sides where she is prone to mat­ted tufts that we cut out.

    Her tail is long and kind of thicker at the base. It’s grey and black also.

    She never leaves the yard so this adven­ture is way out of her com­fort zone. Although she is bold with the other cats around here and will stand her ground when they ven­ture in her yard or porch.

    We thought she had gone into the neigh­bors with her cats, she has a pet door. Unfor­tu­nately the neigh­bor was away for a few days so all we could do was call Wubzy from out­side. She’s quite stub­born if she doesn’t want to be both­ered. It was three days til the neigh­bor was home and checked for her.

    She is greatly missed and her sis­ter (not the other one in the pic­ture) is lost with­out her.

    We are hop­ing to get her home safely.

We have not seen him since even with search­ing all day. He is usu­ally dog like in behav­ior and friendly with all humans and ani­mals he has sib­ling dogs and cats and we all miss him so much.
