Lost and Found
One of the services the Humane Society offers Jefferson County residents is to help reunite pets with their lost owners. If you find or lose a pet, please contact us online, or call us at 785-945-6600. Get your pet spayed or neutered to prevent it from straying. The vast majority of stray dogs the Humane Society shelter takes in are intact animals who were out "looking for love". Not only will spaying/neutering help keep your pet at home where he or she belongs, it will prevent dozens of unwanted puppies and kittens from being produced.
Our Online Lost and Found Services
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.
Spay and Neuter Vouchers
Through the generous funding of Petsmart Charities Grant, we are able to provide a limited number of vouchers which provide financial assistance to low income Jefferson County residents to help spay or neuter cats and medium to large sized dogs (over 40 pounds). The vouchers can be obtained at the shelter during open hours and have to be used within thirty days of issue at any local vet.
Because there are a limited amount of vouchers, please call before coming to the shelter to ensure that we still have vouchers available.
note: as of 02-01-2012 we do not have vouchers available
