When a stray or lost animal is turned into the Houston Humane Society, we make sure to scan all strays for a microchip, and if the animal has an ID tag we call all phone numbers listed.
If the stray is microchipped and/or has an ID Tag, the Houston Humane Society will hold the animal for 3-5 days to give the owner a chance to reclaim before determining whether the animal can enter our adoption program.
If you believe we have your lost pet, we require proof of ownership such as current photos, vet records etc. at which point, our staff will compare to our found animals in an attempt to make a positive identification and reunite you with your lost pet.
Owners can email photos, pet description and documentation to email@example.com
and a staff member will personally check our found animal area and quickly reply.
