My Pet is Lost
The first thing to do if your pet is lost is to call the shelter at 970-625-8808. We have a lost and found book and may have already received a call from someone who has your animal. Or we may already have your pet safely at the shelter waiting for you. You may e-mail the shelter a flyer or picture of your lost of found pet at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be happy to post it in our lobby and on our Facebook page.

I've Checked the Shelter and My Pet is Still Lost
If your pet still hasn't turned up, don’t give up! Canvas your neighborhood repeatedly, keep calling the shelters, contact vets, make flyers, put an ad in the paper, call radio stations…etc. Here is a website with really good ideas and advice for finding a lost pet. Check out the recovery section. http://www.missingpetpartnership.org/
We usually only have animals found or picked up in the Rifle city limits. Below are other agencies that we would suggest calling. It’s a very good idea to call all local shelters and report your pet missing. You never know where they might end up.
