There’s a stray animal in my neighborhood, and I don’t know how to contact the owner. What should I do?

Please approach any unknown animal with appropriate caution, but if you can bring a lost animal in to the hospital, we are always happy to scan it for a microchip or look up a tag number at no charge. These are the easiest ways to identify them and find their rightful home. If we cannot identify them, we recommend placing posters near the location the animal was found. You should also contact our local animal shelters, Humane Society of Cottage Grove, Greenhill Humane Society and Lane County Animal Services, to report a found animal. Please understand that we do not have the ability to accept animals that are lost, but we’ll help you in any other way that we can.
