I Have Lost My Pet
The Beaver County Humane Society provides animal control services for many Beaver County Boroughs and Townships. If you live in these areas, it’s likely your stray animal will end up with us. Even if you do not live in one of these boroughs or townships, your animal may still end up at our shelter.
Stray animals are held according to state law.
LOOK FOR YOUR MISSING PET on our website by viewing the animals at BCHS or animals that are reported found to BCHS, by clicking on the appropriate link above.
Don’t see your pet on our website? Ways for reporting your lost animal:
Online: Submit a Lost Pet Report. Be as detailed as possible when filling out the report, including if your pet is micro-chipped and/or wearing identification tags. You will be allowed to attach a photo at the end of the report. After you have submitted your online report you'll receive a confirmation email. Within that email YOU MUST click the link in the second paragraph to activate your report.
Lost Pet Reports can also be found at the bottom of every page of the appropriate Search Lost Pet Report link above.
Submitting a lost report does not guarantee that we will call you if your pet comes in. Unless the pet is micro-chipped or has a valid ID tag on its collar when found, we may not know it is your pet. If the animal is micro-chipped but your contact information is no longer valid, we may not know how to contact you. We recommend you physically come to the shelter during business hours to look for your lost pet or visit our website daily to look at the animal photos.
In Person: Come to the Beaver County Humane Society during business hours and we’ll help you complete a lost report. Be prepared to give a detailed description of your lost pet. Bring a photo of your pet with you.
By Phone: Call the Lost & Found desk at 724-775-5801 X 105, and we will assist you in completing a lost report.
The first 24 - 48 hours are the most critical!
Lost Pet Tips
Below are some tips for helping you locate your lost pet.
- If your pet is wearing ID with your phone number on it, make sure you are available to answer your phone.
- Search the neighborhood surrounding your home as your pet may not have traveled far. Ask your neighbors, postal carriers, and delivery drivers if they have seen an animal matching your pet's description.
- Visit the Beaver County Humane Society as soon as possible. Our Animal Control Officers pick up many lost pets every day and they may have already picked up yours.
- If your pet is micro-chipped, register the microchip number with the Beaver County Humane Society. We will enter this information into our database which allows Beaver County Humane Society staff to contact you faster if your pet is found.
- If your pet is registered and/or licensed, call us to confirm that your information is current and inform us of any additional contact phone numbers.
- Post a photo and description of your lost pet on Facebook and Twitter. Ask your friends/followers to share the information.
- Create a flyer containing a recent photo of your pet and information regarding how you can be contacted if someone finds your animal.
- Advertise in the lost pet section of your local newspapers and check the “found pets” column.
- There are many sites on the internet you can search. Just type in "Lost Pets" or "Missing Pets" on your favorite search engine. Many people do advertise lost and found pets on Craigslist.com.
Don't limit your search to just our shelter. Sporting dogs can run for miles if they get the chance. Some pets will be picked up by well-meaning passers-by and actually end up farther from home. Here are some neighboring shelters for metro residents:
- Western Pennsylvania Humane Society
- Animal Friends
- Animal Rescue League
- Butler County Humane Society
