You're in Good Hands

You are probably visiting this webpage because you are in crisis -- you've lost your family pet or you recently found a stray. Allow us to assist in facilitating a happy reunion by visiting this independently managed and operated Lost & Found website.

We also provide other helpful information and resources here (below) for animal lovers in our community. In fact, please consider sharing your success stories with us, via e-mail or on our Dog Park Facebook. Nothing like a good tale of a happy reunion to give others hope in their time of need.

  • Licensing / Microchips

Seasonal Pet Care Tips

Happy Holidays ... Remember to dog- and cat-proof your home over the holidays. All those shinny ornaments, Christmas Trees, wreaths, and delicious food can be a real danger to your pets -- and cost you a bundle if you have to make an emergency trip to your veterinarian. Pay attention to what your animals are up to and you’ll head off a problem before it happens!

We also found this very helpful checklist to consider, on the ASPCA website.
