What to do if you’ve lost or found a pet.

Humane Animal Rescue has the City of Pittsburgh’s Animal Control contract. If you live within the City of Pittsburgh, your lost animal may have been brought to our East End facility by Animal Care and Control since all city strays are housed with us. Humane Animal Rescue does not pick up stray animals. If you are a City resident and see a stray animal in your vicinity and are unsure what to do, call Animal Care and Control at 412-255-2036 (7am-3pm) or 412-255-2935 (3pm-11pm). If their office is closed and the situation is an emergency, call 911. When asked, tell the dispatcher you have an animal control emergency.

If your pet is lost, you must personally come to our shelter to view our stray animals in order to make a positive match every 2-3 days. You may also leave photos of your lost pet with our Lost and Found staff or create a poster to fax back to us and post in your neighborhood.

There will be reclaim fees that you will be responsible for in order to get your pet back. One fee goes to the City of Pittsburgh’s Animal Control. That fee is $50. The second is our cost of care reclaim fee, which is also $50. This helps us to offset the costs of caring and vaccinating stray animals. For your convenience, Humane Animal Rescue accepts cash, most major credit cards, and money orders.
