I’ve lost my pet; what do I do?

The first thing to do, after searching your neighborhood, is to visit the Burke County Animal Shelter and look for your lost pet and file a lost report at the shelter. You need to visit the shelter as often as possible to look for your pet. Only you can positively identify your lost pet, we cannot guarantee that a description you give of your pet over the phone will lead to a positive identification by our staff.  The shelter takes in over 4,500 animals a year and many animals look alike.
