Find a lost pet

Here are the steps to follow if you are looking for a lost pet.

Steps

Step 1

Check to see if your pet is in the Minneapolis Animal Care & Control shelter

If your pet is missing, first look to see if it's in our shelter. If you find an animal that you believe is your pet, contact us as soon possible so that your pet is not re-homed.

Check to see if another resident has found your pet

We also keep a list of stray animals found by residents in the last 30 days. These animals are not in our shelter. They are being kept by the residents who found them.
