Larimer Humane Society is northern Colorado’s resource for lost and found pets. Each month, we reunite hundreds of worried pet owners with their stray companions.
If the animal you have found is wearing a license tag, call us at 970-226-3647 and we’ll trace the owner’s contact information.If the animal is not wearing an identification tag, you have three options:
- File a Found Report and care for the animal until an owner can be located. To file a Found Report with Larimer Humane Society we will need to know the animal’s species, breed, color(s) approximate age, sex, tail length, approximate weight as well as where and when the animal was found. You are welcome to bring the animal to Larimer Humane Society so we can scan for a microchip (a permanent form of identification located under the animal’s skin) and accurately complete a found report.

If you will be keeping the animal at your home, please place a Found ad in the newspaper, post fliers where the animal was found, and contact veterinarians and feed stores in your area. Most newspapers offer Found ads for free.
- Bring the animal to Larimer Humane Society. The shelter is open seven days a week and no appointment is necessary. Click here for our hours and location. All stray dogs must be on a leash and stray cats must be confined in a box or carrier when entering the animal shelter. Larimer Humane Society is the logical place for an owner to look for their lost pet. Stray animals not reclaimed by their owners after five days are evaluated for our adoption program.
- Request Animal Control assistance for stray animal pick-up. Use this option if you are unable to transport a stray animal or if you feel the animal you have found may be a threat to people or other animals. An Animal Protection & Control Officer will respond to emergency calls 24-hours a day, but if possible (and safe), please confine the animal and call during business hours. Call 970-226-3647 to Larimer Animal Protection & Control.
Please note: time-sensitive correspondence such as Found Reports or requests for Animal Control assistance should not be sent via Email. Please contact Larimer Humane Society directly at 970-226-3647 or fax us at 970-226-2968.
