Use this form if you have FOUND A PET and you don't know who it belongs to.
The Humane Society of Yuma strongly encourages pet finders to verify proof of ownership before reuniting a pet with its owner. Owner provided photos of the pet are excellent for verifying ownership.
If possible, secure the animal. If you cannot safely contain the pet please call your local Animal Control Service.
Check for tags and injuries. If the pet has tags, call or text their owner and set up a reunion. If they have a city or county registration tag, call the Humane Society of Yuma at 928-782-1621 for owner information. Similarly, if they have a rabies tag, call the vet office it originated from. Sometimes the owner information is stitched directly onto the collar so make sure to look there as well.
Take the pet to a vet, the shelter or call Animal Control to have them scan for a microchip. If the pet has a microchip, look up the microchip number on AAHA Microchip Lookup. This will tell you the microchip company that the chip originated from. Call the company and ask for them to contact the owner.
Fill out the form below to report a found pet and hold onto the pet for 48 hours. Pets that are held by their finder for the first 48 hours are 3 times more likely to be reunited with their owner. This is because 70% of lost pets are found within a mile of their home. 42% of those are found within 400 feet. If you can safely do so, please consider holding the pet for 48 hours before bringing it to the shelter. During this period, please check with neighbors and hang flyers to try and find its owner.
