Managing Lost or Found Pets

If you have lost or found a pet, please contact Animal Services at 720-874-6750 or Email Animal Services and file a report. Please provide last location seen, breed, color, sex, name, and contact information including name, address, and phone number.

Tips for Finding Your Pet

It's important to contact Animal Services and visit local shelters. Lost pets can end up in many different locations for many reasons. If you don't find information regarding your pet, don't give up. Leave a lost pet report and current photo with staff.

Act fast

  • Check each shelter daily. Don’t assume that a shelter will house your animal any longer than a few days.
  • Notify friends and neighbors that your pet is lost.
  • Contact veterinary practices in your area. They may have a Lost and Found bulletin board in their offices.
  • Read the “found” ads, and take out a “lost” ad in the newspapers.
  • If your neighborhood permits, post fliers in the area where you lost your pet.
  • Don’t give up.

Make sure

  • Your cat or dog wears a current rabies tag, license tag and an ID tag with your present address and phone numbers
  • Your address and phone numbers are on file with the veterinarian who provided your pet’s most recent vaccinations
  • Your contact information is current with the registry for your pet’s microchip identification implant
