Michigan Partnership for Animal Welfare’s Lost and Found Pet Map
Please use the map below to get contact information for facilities where your lost pet may be found, or where a pet you’ve found should be reported. PLEASE NOTE that Michigan law requires that any person who finds a lost animal must immediately (within 48 hours) report that animal to the local law enforcement. Most counties (and several cities) in the state have registered animal shelters which are authorized to hold animals in public view for owners to claim them. Use the map below to find the shelter that houses lost pets in your area.
If your pet is missing, it’s up to you to aggressively search for him or her. State of Michigan law requires that animal shelters hold stray pets for 4 days if they have no form of identification or 7 days if they do have some form of identification — such as a microchip, tattoo or tag. The more action you take, and the sooner you begin searching, the more likely you are to find your lost pet. MPAW recommends visiting all area shelters soon and often, ideally every day but at least every 2 or 3 days. MPAW recommends that ALL pets (including indoor-only pets) wear both visible identification (tag) and be microchipped.
