I just want to let anyone who might lose a pet know that they need to check the animal control website and check often. You should also pay them a visit because they have might not have had time to update the website.

I have a cat that was gone for 3 days and I went to see if they had him and he wasn't there. Came home and checked the website and they had just put a cat that looked like him on there. I immediately went back and they let me see him and it was my kitty He will be home tomorrow with a microchip, and they're going to fix him for a fraction of what the vet charges.

There's the website. They seem to update often. You should always personally go there and check because they keep some animals in isolation if they respiratory problems or other illness. If your pet has been missing for a while its possible that they might have gotten sick and are being kept apart from the other animals.

I am so glad you got your kitty back! As an Animal Care and Control volunteer, I am so happy to hear that you've been reunited. That is fantastic news!

I agree with your advice to go down to the shelter to visit. Though the staff does an admirable job of keeping the Web site up to date, it is very difficult to do so with the amount of animals that the officers bring in or are turned in by their owners on a daily basis. The best way to find a lost pet is to go to the shelter and check for yourself.
