Lost and Found
One of the services the Humane Society offers Jefferson County residents is to help reunite pets with their lost owners. If your pet is missing or you find a stray, fill out one of these forms and give us a call at 785-945-6600.
- If you're looking for your 4 legged friend, give us a call and see if anything's come in to the shelter.
- To reclaim your animal, we do ask that you can provide your ID, and proof of ownership, vet records or photos with your fur baby.
It happens every day: lost dogs and cats are brought to animal shelters all across the nation. Too often the animals are not wearing tags and have no microchip. Without identification, how do we find the owners? Each year across the country, seven million cats and dogs are lost, and only 16 percent of dogs and 2 percent of cats find their way home again from shelters.
The most effective way to help your pet go home again should it become lost is to have him/her microchipped. The process is quick, simple, and safe for the animal.
All animals adopted from the Jefferson County Humane Society have received a microchip. We encourage you to microchip your pets. For only $10 (per animal) we'd be happy to provide this service for your special companion. To obtain a microchip come to the shelter during open hours with your pet.
