Dallas Animal Services

Lost and Found


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 using the following steps:
  • In person at 1818 N. Westmoreland Rd.
  • By phone Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. (214) 670-9501.
  • By email evenings and weekends at daslost@dallascityhall.com
There are several ways you can search for your pet:
  • *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!
    • 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.
  • You can post a "Lost Pet" flyer in our lobby.
  • Web - Go to PetHarbor.com., enter your zip code, then check the shelters you want to search.
  • Use social media such as Facebook, Twitter and Nextdoor.com.
  • Place an ad in your local paper or ask your local vets, businesses or schools for their permission to post signs.
  • Ask around: neighbors, postal delivery workers, yard crews, and post an announcement at the local park.
If you find your animal at Dallas Animal Services:
  • There are fees associated with daily boarding, impoundment, vaccination (if you don't have proof of current rabies vaccination), microchipping and spay/neuter. You may speak to a representative at the Lost and Found desk to discuss the fees or access them on line.
    • Dallas City Code Section 7-2.6, details fees for redeeming your pet.
Microchips save lives!
  • DAS offers microchipping for just $15 during regular business hours. No appointment needed.

*If you are needing to surrender a pet or have found a stray and need to turn it in, you may do so by bringing them to the Lost and Found lobby during normal business hours*
