HAVE YOU FOUND A STRAY Dog or cat?
STRAY DOG INFORMATION
Members of the public who have found or lost a dog should contact their local Animal Control Department but can also attempt to locate a possible owner (via ID tags, getting them scanned for a microchip at a vet, physically looking for their owner, etc.).
Grand Traverse County Animal Control:
Leelanau County Animal Control:
Please remember that identification, collars with tags and microchips, are your pet’s fastest ticket home! Cats, too, can safely wear collars with tags and are an easy way for us and your neighbors to know that your cat has a loving home. Microchips can be placed by a veterinarian.
We also advise that you post/check your local social media lost and found pages as well as local newspaper, radio, etc.
