Lost a Pet? 

  1. Search your property thoroughly. Cats and small dogs can get into some mighty strange places.

  2. Walk the neighborhood, talk to everybody, and leave your phone number.

  3. Call out to your pet while you walk around the neighborhood! Animals can hear you from great distances. Listen carefully for an answer back - they could be behind closed doors!

  4. Bring a powerful flashlight (even during daylight hours) for checking in dark spaces.

  5. Place your pet's bedding and recently used articles of your clothing outside your home to attract your pet. Animals find their way by scent as well as sound.

  6. AS SOON AS POSSIBLE VISIT or CALL your local Animal Control Department and animal shelter, including the ones in surrounding areas.

  7. Call local veterinary offices during the day. After 5 PM, call emergency veterinary clinics.

  8. It is extremely important to post MANY flyers about your lost pet within a 1-mile radius of where it was lost.

  9. Place an ad in the local newspaper(s). These are often free!

  10. Consider placing an ad online.

Saving Grace Pet Adoption Center receives stray pets found in Douglas County and brought in by Douglas County Animal Control, other local law enforcement agencies, and caring members of the public.

Pets entering our shelter are checked for microchips, vaccinated, and treated for fleas and worms.

Stray dogs are held for 72 hours in accordance with Oregon state law with the hope that they will be re-united with their owner. If the owner does not claim the pet, it is then evaluated for adoption.

IT IS IMPERATIVE TO NOTIFY:

WHEN YOU FIND A PET.

After 30 days, if no one has claimed the pet then you need to:

1.    Have the pet spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.

2.    If it is a dog, you need to have it licensed in you name as soon as the rabies vaccine is given.

Doing all of the steps listed above shows that you made a thorough effort to locate the owner and can help ensure that the pet is legally yours and no longer someone else’s property.

If you do not wish to complete the steps listed above, please bring the pet to Saving Grace for placement.

We ask for a small fee to  help cover cost of care for surrendered pets.

Stray Cats $10

Kittens (under 4 months) $10 Litter of 1-3 / $15 Litter of 4 & up

Stray Rabbit $10

There is no fee to surrender a stray dog.
