This form helps alert staff should an animal matching the description entered below arrives at the shelter. If we do pick up an animal matching this description, you will be notified so that you may come to the shelter for formal identification of your pet. If we receive a lost report matching a found report, we will attempt to connect both parties to try and reunite the animal and its owner. This program is maintained by volunteers, so please allow time for your information to be received. Keep in mind that we ONLY pick up stray dogs inside the city limits of Springfield. Cats are not picked up as strays since there is no leash law in the city, but sometimes neighbors turn in cats as their own, so it is possible that your lost cat could be at the shelter. After 5 days dogs are available to offer to rescue groups, so please begin your search as early as possible.
