Lost and Found Tips
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 owners cannot be located.
Tips for finding your lost pet
- Search the FOUND PETS section above that includes stray pets turned into HSS and those found and being cared for by individuals in their own home.
- If there is not a photograph of the found pet it is best to come to the shelter to look at the pet yourself as descriptions of pets can vary.
- If your pet is not at HSS, check the website of the shelter closest to you and visit the shelter to look for your lost pet.
- Fill out a Lost Pet Report either in person at HSS or on the phone at 928-282-4679.
- Email a photo of your pet to HSS at email@example.com
- Let your neighborhood know via word of mouth, social media and through 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, our outbuilding since your pet has gone missing. Sometimes curious pets wander in and become trapped.
