Stray Animals (Lost/Found)​​

Snake River Animal Shelter (SRAS) would like see stray animals returned to their owners. Though we cannot accept any stray animals from the public, we can help by scanning the animal for a microchip and check any lost reports we may have. All stray animals must be reported to local law enforcement. Please consider any advice they may give for the next steps in helping the animal be returned to its home. Our goal is to help any lost animal be returned to their rightful owner, but even we need to work through local law enforcement to help any stray animals.

To help prevent your animal(s) from getting lost, remember to ALWAYS have a collar with some kind of identification tag securely attached to it. A microchip (small rice-sized chip inserted underneath the skin, in-between the shoulder blades), is also another great way to identify your animal. It’s an invisible identification tag that cannot be lost like collars and tags, and is NOT a tracking device.
