View Lost/Stray Pets in Shelter
We encourage the public to use our online services or to call us for assistance whenever possible, only coming to the shelter in person if absolutely necessary. We offer the following services online: Licensing a new dog, renewing a license, reporting a lost or found animal and viewing stray animals located at the shelter.
Please click the COVID-19 & Pets link below for details on service impacts for Washington County Animal Services and the Bonnie Hays Animal Shelter as well as useful information for pet owners.
Photos of all lost and stray animals in our shelter are available on-line within an hour of them coming into our care. Click the appropriate link below to see if your missing pet is at our shelter. Be sure to scroll all the way down and click through if there is more than one page. There is also a link at the bottom to display animals found by the public and registered on Pet Harbor.
CONTACT US RIGHT AWAY IF YOU SEE YOUR PET!
If you see a photo of an animal that may be your pet, you can come directly to the shelter during our normal business hours or call us at 503-846-7039. We will be glad to share information with you to help you determine if it is your pet. Our staff is often busy helping other citizens, so if there is no answer, please leave a detailed message with your name, phone number, city where you live, a description of the lost pet, and any identifying information (such as a microchip number). We will return your call as soon as we can. We are closed on Sundays and holidays; if you call on those days, your call will be returned as soon as possible the next business day.
For more information about reclaiming your pet, including fees, identification and more, please view our If Your Lost Pet is at Our Shelter page.
Pet Harbor is the online software that we use to document and share photos of pets in our shelter. The links above go directly to all dogs, cats, or other pets currently in our shelter, but you can also choose to create your own search. For best results, don't try to describe your pet too much. You may inadvertently screen out your pet by giving an age that is different than our estimate or listing colors differently than we entered them. Clicking on the "search now" button will take you to the pictures of the animals.
