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.

Munic­i­pal­ity Con­tact Infor­ma­tion  (PDF)

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:

    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.

    A dog has been found near route 322 in New Hol­land, PA. It may or may not be a farm dog. It looks more like a dingo, and has its ribs stick­ing out. The dog looks very mal­nour­ished and is ter­ror­iz­ing the neigh­bor­hood dogs. The dog is not afraid of cars, and almost got hit. This dog is so large, you may just wreck your lit­tle Mit­subishi or what­ever small car you might hap­pen to wreck it a bit. The dog is dark tan with brown around the muz­zle and a slightly curled longish tail. Is very skit­tish and will run away.
