If You Lose or Find a Pet
To recover your pet as quickly as possible or to locate the owner of a pet that you have found, you should circulate a detailed description of the animal. Here are some guidelines to assist you:
  1. Call the Humane Society of Pagosa Springs at (970)731-4771 and ask to list your pet in the Lost and Found Registry.
  2. Call Archuleta County Dispatch at (970)731-2160 to report a lost or found pet.
  3. If your pet has been micro-chipped by the Humane Society, call the Companion Animal Recovery hotline at 1-800-252-7894 and report your pet missing. (If your pet has been micro-chipped elsewhere, call the appropriate national database.)
  4. Notify your own veterinarian as well as all local veterinary clinics. People who find animals often call the veterinarian to report it, particularly if the animal is wearing a rabies tag which has the veterinarianís phone number on it. Click here for a list of local veterinarians.
  5. If you have lost your dog (or cat), place a yard sign in front of your house with a photo of your missing pet and your phone number. People who find a dog (or cat) will often walk or drive around the area, trying to find the animal's owner.
  6. Notify KWUF Radio Pet Patrol at (970)264-5983. They will broadcast the information at no charge to you.
  7. Place an advertisement in the Lost and Found section of the Pagosa Sun at (970)264-2100. It's free and the classified ads have a high readership.
  8. Prevent the heartache of losing your dog or cat by always having it wear an identification tag even if it has an identifying microchip. This is especially important when you have just acquired a new pet because it might wander off or get lost while adjusting to its new home.
