Contact and Visit all local shelters with information about your pet.

Remember that lost pets are often afraid and confused. They can travel for miles trying to find their way back home. Don’t rule out the possibility that your pet has traveled several towns away.


If you have FOUND a pet here are some things to do:

We DO NOT do animal control and cannot take in every found animal that comes to us. However, we do want to do everything we can to get that pet back to its owners. Please follow the below steps if you have found a stray pet. Please always remember that lost pets are afraid and confused and may not always have their normal friendly personalities. Always use caution if you do handle a stray animal as they can carry many diseases that humans can catch. If you are unsure about an animals personality please DO NOT handle that animal and call Animal Control or the Police right away!

Contact the shelter during regular hours 

Send us an email at adoptlove@rbari.org with as much information as possible and a picture (if possible) of the animal that you have found. 

Visit lost and found pets on www.petfinder.com to see if the pet is listed as being lost 

Contact all the police departments of the surrounding towns to notify them that you have found a pet. 

Leave a description of the pet and a phone number where you can be contacted if the owner of the pet is located. 

Contact Animal Control for all the surrounding towns. 

Contact and Visit all local shelters, vets offices, groomers and other animal care professionals to see if the pet sounds familiar - maybe belonging to a client. 

Post Flyers in the area that you found the pet. Hopefully the owners will see it and contact you.
