Who do I call if I am missing my animal?

Call 804-693-5290 or stop by our office. We will try to determine if an animal fitting the description of your animal was picked up and impounded. If we have not impounded your animal we will fill out a lost card describing the animal, and keep it on file. Please be mindful that it is very difficult to identify mixed breed animals due to discrepancies and variations in descriptions.

You should also contact the Gloucester-Mathews Humane Society at 804-693-5520. Even though they do not pick up animals, they will frequently take in a stray animal that has been found by a citizen and brought to their facility. They are located at:

6620 Jackson Lane
Gloucester, VA 23061
