Have you LOST your beloved pet?

If so here are some helpful tips to do immediately, which may increase the likelihood of finding your pet.
  • Report your pet missing at ALL surrounding shelters (who take in strays) as soon as possible to increase the chances of finding them. Due to the high number of stray dogs and cats brought in and subjectivity of descriptions, we are unable to guarantee by phone whether your pet is at the shelter. For the best chance of identifying he/she, visit these shelters in person with an updated photo. Note: Go back frequently, not just one time.
  • Please also submit a report online here, to ensure you immediately know about your lost pet. 
  • Hang well done flyers (with color photos) all over your neighborhood, including entires at the local grocery store, coffee shop, and any other local ‘hot’ spots. Remember to take them down once your pet has been found. 
  • Post on social media, encourage all your friends and family to share. Tag all shelters on those posts, as well as directly posting these notices on those same shelter social media pages. Note: many cities now have a ‘lost pets’ social media page on Facebook. 

If the Flagler Humane Society has your pet, there may be reclaim fees involved.

Reclaim fees charged to reclaim a lost or stray animal, and only help us to underwrite the costs incurred in staff time and supplies we use when an animal is brought to the Flagler Humane Society. This includes vaccinations and flea control on intake, staff time to process your pet, and care the animal receives, which is often times the case.
The reclaim fee is also in part punitive to help reiterate the importance of not allowing your pet to roam unsupervised. Animals allowed to roam have a greater chance of being hit by a car, attacked by another animal, potentially exposed to diseases or be impounded by animal control. Of course at times a pet gets away accidentally, due to perhaps loud noises, repair people entering your home, etc.
Rates are as follows:
  • First reclaim rate is $55.00 (includes an engraved id tag)
  • Rabies vaccination + Palm Coast License fees may be applied
  • Second reclaim rate is $100.00
  • Third reclaim rate is $150.00
  • Each additional reclaim after the third is an added $50.00
  • Boarding fees apply of $15.00 per day after the first day of intake
All owners must provide positive Identification to reclaim an animal from the Flagler Humane Society. Positive identification is state or federal government issued ID. This includes state issued driver’s license, state identification card, a passport or military ID. There is no exception to the identification requirement. All IDs will be photo copied and attached to the reclaim paperwork.

Below are the pets currently on a stray holding at the Flagler Humane Society. Please note this does change daily, as most every day animals are being brought into our facility, unfortunately.

Tips

  • Create a flyer with your pet’s photo, a brief description and your phone number. Distribute the flyers and post them on telephone poles in the area where you lost your pet. If you can afford it, you might consider offering a reward.
  • Put a “lost pet” ad in the local newspapers. The ad should be titled “Lost Cat” or “Lost Dog” and should include your phone number, the date that the animal was lost, where she was last seen, and a clear, brief description containing the animal’s name, breed, color, sex, age, and whether she was wearing a collar. (Note: If you’re offering a reward, you might want to leave out one detail, such as gender, in order to avoid scam artists.)
  • Call the local animal control officer in all the surrounding areas. Palm Coast – 386.986.2520. For Flagler County – 386.246.8612. Send each a photo and visit their pounds daily.
  • Call area veterinary clinics and send them a missing flyer with a photo of your pet. Ask each of them if any animal fitting your pet’s description has been brought in.
  • Go to all the shelters in the area – don’t just call. Give them a color photo of your pet with your phone number on it. Ask to see all the animals in the shelter and visit every cage. Go back and check all the shelters every day. Shelter employees are often very busy, so you can’t depend on someone remembering that an animal like yours was brought in.
  • If you suspect that your pet may have been stolen, report your pet missing to the police. They may know if an animal fitting your pet’s description has been hit by a car (or they may be able to direct you to the department that handles this).
  • Read the “pet found” section in the local newspapers daily. Many papers run “found” ads for free. Follow up on any ad that describes an animal similar to yours, since you can’t count on the finder to describe your pet exactly as you would.
  • Look around your neighborhood carefully (or wherever your pet was lost). Cats can wander into a neighbor’s basement or garage, fall asleep and accidentally get shut in.
  • Late at night or very early in the morning, when the area is quiet, go to the place where your pet was lost. Bring his favorite food and a flashlight. Call his name and wait to see if he shows up. Try this repeatedly.
  • If your pet is an indoor cat who does not usually get out, place her litter box outside, where she may smell her own scent and recognize her home. (Do not clean it out first!)
  • If your pet is registered with a lost-pet network organization, call them right away.
  • Don’t give up! Persistence is often the key to finding a lost pet. Some animals have been found after months of being missing.
