Losing a pet is a traumatic experience! The best way to find your pet, however, is to act quickly. If your pet was lost in or near our service area…

  • Fill out the lost pet report through the link below.

  • Next, view our pets pages (dogs or cats) - these pages are updated live with all of the animals in our care. Please Note: it may say adopt, but every stray animal that comes into our care is given a 72 stray hold to ensure that owners have a chance to claim their pet. If you see your pet, please head to the shelter ASAP!

  • Post photos on local lost & found pet pages on Facebook. Some to consider are Harlingen Lost & Found Pets, Harlingen/San Benito Lost & Found-Pets, RGV Pets, and RGV Reunite Lost Pets 


  • Current government issued photo identification with your name and address

  • Vaccination or licensing records

  • Pictures of your pet

  • Proof of ownership (adoption papers, bill of sale, city license)
