Lost or Found Animals

Lost Pets

If you have lost your pet:

  • Come to the Tri-City Animal Shelter and Adoption Center immediately at 1150 East Pleasant Run Road If you need further directions please call us at 972-291-5335.
  • Inform your neighbors that your pet is missing.
  • Bring a picture of your pet to the shelter and fill out a lost report. We only hold lost reports for 10 days and extend the duration each time an owner comes in to check on a missing pet. Even with a lost report it is still very important to do a shelter walk-through at least every other day!
  • Check the shelter every day to see if your pet has been brought in.
  • Check other sites such as Craigslist, Pets 911, Facebook and Petfinder.
  • Check all local shelters. We can never predict in what direction our missing pets are headed.
  • Call us once you find your pet so that we can updated your lost report as found.
  • We microchip for only $25 and will register the chip at time of service.

Found Pets

If you have found a pet within Duncanville, DeSoto, or Cedar Hill and would like it to be picked up, contact animal control at (972) 223-6111. You may also bring the pet to the Tri-City Animal and Adoption Center during the the following hours:

  • Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Saturday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

If you would prefer to keep the pet in your home and search for the owner, please bring the animal to the shelter and have it scanned for a microchip, check the lost reports and file a found report. We will happily scan and check for a microchip for found pets outside our jurisdiction.
