Losing your pet can be a sad, frightening, and even traumatic experience. Dallas Animal Services understands this and wants to assist citizens with finding their animals.
Lost and Found reports can be filed with our Lost and Found team:
- In person at 1818 N. Westmoreland Rd.
- By phone Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. (214) 670-9501 or (214) 671-1597
- By email evenings and weekends, firstname.lastname@example.org
There are several ways you can search for your pet:
Come to the shelter: *The Best Method* Come to DAS and look for your pet. We receive hundreds of animals every week. You know your pet best – and he/she knows you best too! You can even post a “Lost” poster in our lobby. Hours to look for your pet are Monday-Friday 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Even if the pet remotely sounds like yours, come to the shelter to see if it’s here. What you may call a Boston Terrier mix may look like a French Bulldog mix to us.
