Looking for a lost pet?
These are animals found in Hamilton County either by the public or the Hamilton County Dog Warden. Per the Ohio Revised Code, strays are held at the shelter or in a stray foster for a minimum of 72 hours. If you believe any of these are your lost pet, please contact the shelter immediately at 513-541-7387. Be prepared to provide proof of ownership: photos of you with your pet, vet records, adoption paperwork, or purchase receipt.
Make sure to also file a lost pet report on PawBoost. PawBoost is like an AMBER Alert for lost pets and has helped reunite over one million pets with their families. Posting is free, with optional premium services available.
