We at Mesa County Animal Services know how devastating it can be to realize that your pet is missing. In order to facilitate a quick reunion between you and your pet, Mesa County provides some unique services.

The Lost and Found Pets website (separate from Mesa County's website) provides information about displaced pets in our custody and in the community. This provides residents with a means to share information about animals they have found and are keeping in their home while they search for the owner. In addition, owners that have lost pets can post contact and animal information so that if a match is made a reunion can be coordinated.

However, pet owners should be aware that based on an animal’s health, situations beyond our control or technical difficulties, specific animals may not be listed and descriptions are open to interpretation. If you have a lost pet, we always recommend that you visit our shelter regularly as only you can properly identify your lost companion. A bulletin board is also available to post and review lost pets. Staff at the shelter will scan a found pet for a microchip.

If a dog is found during business hours an officer can be dispatched to pick it up or you can bring it to our shelter.

Please see After Hours Drop Off for more information and options about how to handle a found dog.
