Tips For Helping A Found Pet
There is no single place to post found pet information, so please be diligent and explore all the resources below.
If you decide to keep the pet while locating the owner, please contact Aggieland Humane to place a found ad.
Reservation Required for Owner Surrender and Out of (Brazos) County Pets
Animals will be taken in by reservation only, based on available space, which will be made on a first come, first served basis. If you have questions regarding the surrender of a found pet, please call (979)775-5755. If you would like to make a reservation, please fill out one of the owner surrender forms below and email or fax it to the office.
If an animal is deemed not adoptable at the time of their reservation, the person who brought the animal in is given the following options: to keep the pet and/or to take the animal to a veterinarian for treatment, to seek placement at a local animal shelter or rescue group or owner requested euthanasia.
This is sometimes difficult because microchip and license databases are not kept current by owners. Use of the internet to locate new telephone numbers, addresses, etc. can be helpful.
Even if you have to turn the animal in to the shelter, please take time to get the word out regarding it’s plight. Your ad or post can say it is in the shelter or have them contact you for details. To be certain the owners are truly the pet’s folks, do not publicize all information. Leave out one or two key identifiers that the owners can tell you. In cases that you cannot catch the animal call Animal Control, numbers below. It can be of great value to post sightings of animals that are clearly lost and not caught.
**If you can keep the pet for a while Aggieland Humane Society will put a description into the Found Pet Book for folks who looking for lost critters. **If you are not able to keep it, please bring to the Shelter (mentioned above) or call the Animal Control Officer within your jurisdiction to pick it up. The Shelter is where many will look for their lost pets.
