Owners who have lost pets are encouraged to visit the Oshkosh Area Humane Society to look for their pets, rather than call, as many animals look the same. Please also fill out a lost dog or cat report.

Individuals who have found a pet should file a found report with OAHS. Don't assume a lost or stray pet has been intentionally abandoned or mistreated. Think about what you'd want someone to do if they found your lost pet. Finders can keep the pet until the owner is located or they surrender the pet to the Oshkosh Area Humane Society but please file a report to make sure every effort is made to find the pet's owner. Please bring the pet in to have it scanned for a microchip, another way of finding the pet's owner. Please check online avenues such as Craigslist or Facebook pages such as Lost Dogs of Wisconsin or Lost Cats of Wisconsin to see if someone is searching for their lost pet.

If you have recently found or lost a pet please complete one of the following forms. Please be aware that we will keep your report on file for three months and do everything within our power to reunite the pet with its rightful owner. If you have recovered your animal within that timeframe, please contact us so we may discard the "lost" report.
