LAND O’ LAKES, Fla. – Have you ever found a lost dog but aren’t sure what to do?  Pasco County Animal Services (PCAS) encourages you to find a lost dog’s owner before taking the dog to the shelter.

“Most lost dogs are found within a mile of their home, and often in the same neighborhood,” said PCAS Director Mike Shumate.  “Keeping them in the same area where they’re found gives them the best chance of getting back home.”

Options for trying to find a dog’s owner include:

  • Posting info to websites/social media
  • Checking with neighbors
  • Distributing flyers
  • Contacting vet clinics for microchip

If you find an aggressive, sick, or injured animal, please call PCAS at 813.929.1212.

PCAS also has a Finder to Foster program, which allows you to hold onto lost dogs during their legal stray hold time.  You can bring the dog to the shelter so we can post the information on our website. 

Then, after the stray period, and after the dog has been medically cleared and spayed or neutered, you can choose to adopt the dog or bring it back to the shelter for adoption.
