The Humane Society of Sedona (HSS) welcomes lost pets from the City of Sedona, provides them with safe shelter and compassionate care, and works to reunite them with their owners or help them find a new home if the owners cannot be located.
A microchip provides secure, reliable, and permanent identification, which greatly increases the likelihood that your pet, if lost, will be returned home to you. A microchip only does its job if it is registered with up-to-date contact information in a pet recovery database.
Tips For Finding Your Lost Pet
- If your pet has a microchip, call the chip manufacturer and report him/her missing.
- Search the FOUND PETS section above that includes stray pets turned into us and those found and being cared for by individuals in their own home.
- If your pet is not at HSS, contact the shelter closest to you.
- File a Lost Pet Report either in person at HSS or by calling us at at 928-282-4679.
- Email a photo of your pet to HSS at email@example.com.
- Notify your neighborhood via word of mouth, social media and with posters describing your lost pet.
- Check shelters, veterinarians and neighborhood “found pet” posters near you daily.
- Ask neighbors if they have opened and closed a shed, garage, or outbuilding since your pet has gone missing. Sometimes curious pets wander in and become trapped.
What To Do if You Find a Lost Pet
- Take the pet to have him/her scanned for a microchip. Any veterinarian, rescue group, or shelter will have a microchip scanner and there is no charge for this service.
- Search the LOST PETS section above to see if an owner has reported their pet missing.
- If you are able to keep the pet at your home, HSS will help find the owner.
- File a Found Pet Report either in person at HSS or by calling us at 928-282-4679.
- Take a photo of the pet and email it to HSS at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- If you are not able to keep the pet at your home, and if the pet was found within the city limits of Sedona, you may bring the pet to HSS during business hours from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.
- If you are not sure if the pet was found within the City of Sedona, call HSS for the boundaries.
