Below we have compiled a list of shelters and humane society phone numbers
along with some serious mistakes that people make when looking for their pets.
Remember to look at all shelters. Your dog could have jumped in someone's car
and then took off again miles and miles from home. We met a lady who found her
dog three months later three states away. PLEASE READ ENTIRE POSTING!
Make sure you SCROLL down, it's a huge list. First start by checking on facebook
Under: "For the Love of Louie" they cross post dogs that are lost and found. Also check your local facebook lost and found pages.
MICHIGAN HUMANE SOCIETY: #1 COMMON MISTAKE:
THEY ALLOW CITIZENS TO POST LOST AND FOUND PETS ON THEIR WEB PAGE.
HOWEVER, WE HAVE MET PEOPLE THAT THOUGHT THOSE DOGS WERE SITTING
AT THE SHELTERS. MHS DOES NOT POST THE STRAYS THEY HAVE FOUND. YOU MUST
VISIT THE SHELTERS. THE PETS POSTED ON THEIR WEBSITE ARE FROM PRIVATE
CITIZENS THAT ARE HOLDING YOUR DOG.
DETROIT SHELTER: show contact info
WESTLAND SHELTER: show contact info
ROCHESTER HILLS: show contact info
NEW ADDITION and request from Huron Twp animal shelter.
Please call the police department at show contact info
and they will
contact the control officer as he does not have a phone at the
shelter that just opened back up.
GENESEE COUNTY HAS THE SAME COMMON MISTAKE. THERE ARE TWO
FACILITIES LOCATED THERE.
GENESEE ANIMAL CONTROL SHELTER show contact info
HUMANE SOCIETY OF GENESEE COUNTY show contact info
UNFORTUNATELY WE HAVE AGAIN MET PEOPLE WHO
DID NOT REALIZE THERE ARE TWO FACILITIES AND WEEKS
HAD GONE BY BEFORE THEY REALIZED THERE WAS ANOTHER
PLACE TO LOOK FOR THEIR PET.
LIVINGSTON COUNTY HUMANE SOCIETY HAS A WEBSITE THAT LISTS
THE STRAYS THAT ARE AT THEIR FACILITY. HOWEVER, THEY ALSO
HAVE A LOST AND FOUND SECTION ON THEIR WEBPAGE FOR PRIVATE
CITIZENS TO POST ANIMAL THEY HAVE LOST OR FOUND. YOU MUST
REALIZE THERE ARE TWO LINKS ON THEIR WEB PAGE. STRAYS WHICH ARE THE DOGS
AT THEIR FACILITY AND THE LOST AND FOUND LINK. IN ORDER TO SEE THE FOUND
DOGS YOU WILL NEED TO SCROLL THROUGH THE ENTIRE LIST OF LOST DOGS TO
GET TO THE BOTTON WHERE YOU FIND THE FOUND DOGS.
FOR A COMPLETE LIST OF MICHIGAN SHELTERS AND HUMANE
SOCIETY VISIT WWW.MYHUMANESOCIETY.COM
ANOTHER HUGE MISTAKE MADE IS THE LACK OF KNOWLEDGE THAT
MANY SHELTERS WILL HAVE BOOKS WITH A LIST OF PRIVATE CITIZENS HOLDING
ON TO YOUR PET. THERE ARE ALSO BOOKS THAT HAVE A LIST OF DECEASED
PETS BROUGHT IN BY ANIMAL CONTROL. YOU MUST ASK EVERY SHELTER YOU VISIT
IF THEY HAVE A LIST COMPILED. GOOD LUCK AND PLEASE IF YOU GET YOUR
PET BACK, MICROCHIP THEM.
