Lost Pet Resources

Have you lost a pet? We’re here to help!

We receive a high number of animals in at our shelter and understand that losing a pet can be a very stressful experience. In this guide, we want to give you resources that you can use to help your pet get home to you faster.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

  • Visit our main shelter location to see if your animal is here. We’re located at 4400 Raytown Road and open Noon-6pm Monday-Saturday and Noon-5pm on Sunday.

Step 4

  • Review KC Pet Project’s Found Animal Photos to see if a pet matching your description has come in.
Please note: Due to the high number of pets we receive we are unable to make a promise to contact you if one fitting your pet’s description enters our care, and submission of a Lost Pet Report does not guarantee that you will be contacted if your missing pet is impounded at KC Pet Project.  You assume responsibility for following up on the receipt of this Lost Pet Report, reviewing KC Pet Project’s found animal photos, and visiting as often as possible (we suggest daily or on staggered days) to find your pet before it becomes available for adoption.  If you have not yet provided one, please send a photo of your missing animal to lostandfound.pets@kcmo.org within 24 hours.  Lost Pet Reports are kept on file for 30 days.  If your pet is still missing after 30 days please file a new report.

Rescue Groups

*It is always a good idea if your dog is purebred or could be considered purebred to contact rescue groups in the US who specialize in that breed.—If your dog is not pure bred please continue to contact rescue groups JUST IN CASE*

**PetFinder provides a great resource on their website that allows you to search for rescue groups based on their breed as well as based on their location. Dogs are transported to rescues all across the U.S. so don’t be afraid to contact out of state rescue groups as well just in case. A list of area rescues is available on the Humane Society of Greater Kansas City’s website.

If you think your pet was stolen

If you think there is a chance your dog is stolen please contact the police to fill out a report. Reports are great to have on file in the chance that you find someone who has your dog and won’t give it back. Make sure that you have photos of as many angles as possible of your dogs as they also help in proving ownership. If your pet is microchipped this is THE BEST proof of ownership you can have. If you see someone with your dog the best thing to do is call the police and provide them with any evidence you can (picture, license plate, address) so that they can handle the situation.

Microchips

If your animal is microchipped please contact the company: ensure your information is current and report your pet as lost. If you do not know if your pet is micro-chipped you can contact the facility that you received your pet from and they can give you the info. If you’re not sure what your pet’s chip is registered with, you can search the chip number. This website will also give you the microchip company’s name, as well as contact information so you can report your pet missing.
