All stray animals brought to OAHS are posted on the Found Strays Facebook page. The pictures remain posted until the stray-hold period is over or the animal is redeemed by the owner, whichever occurs first. The Oshkosh Area Humane Society is contracted with many townships around the Fox Valley area to take any stray pets that are found. If you find or lose a pet outside of the City of Oshkosh the first step is to contact the Town Chairperson or Constable to either get approval to bring the found animal to OAHS or to get any information about sightings of the animal you have lost.
The OAHS holds stray animal contracts with the following areas – meaning if a stray is found in one of these areas it can be brought to OAHS:
City of Oshkosh
Town of Algoma : 920-235-3789
Town of Black Wolf (Leo, Constable) : 920-410-2400
Town of Clayton (David, Animal Control) : 920-836-3046

Other steps to find your lost animal:
1. Submit a Lost Dog Report to OAHS or
Submit a Lost Cat Report to OAHS
Submit lost reports to all other area shelters, rescues and vet clinics.
2. Post your pet online - Craigslist and Facebook are two online sites where you can get your pet's pictures posted along with a thorough description and your contact information. Facebook has both Lost Dogs of Wisconsin and Lost Cats of Wisconsin where you can submit the information and they will automatically generate flyers to distribute.
3. Get the word out! Distribute flyers to neighbors and area businesses with a picture, description of your pet and your contact information.
