I've Lost My Pet

The Panhandle Humane Society provides impound services for Scottsbluff, Gering, Terrytown, Mitchell, Morrill, Bayard, Minatare and all of Scotts Bluff County and surrounding areas. If your pet has gone missing, we're here to help you return him/her to your family.

We are available during regular business hours, which are from 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. on Monday through Friday and 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. The Panhandle Humane Society is closed on Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Day.

We encourage guardians of lost pets to check the shelter at least every 24 hours to see if your animal is here. Telephone information alone may not be sufficient to identify your animal. We urge you to visit the shelter in person to positively identify your animal. Bringing a current photo will help with identification. Your visit could help expedite a reunion with your pet, as animals often lose their collars and tags. If your animal is at the Humane Society, he or she will be held for three business days. After these three days the animal will become property of the Panhandle Humane Society and may require boarding fees for every day he/she has been impounded. Stray animals that are not claimed by their owner are made available for adoption.
