I've Lost My Pet

Panhandle Humane Society provides impound services for Scottsbluff, Gering, Terrytown, Mitchell, Morrill, Minatare and all of Scotts Bluff County. 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 1 pm - 4 pm every day of the week. On the fourth Wednesday of each month we are open from 3 to 5 pm. Panhandle Humane Society is closed on Easter, 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. One visit or phone call and you could miss your animal's arrival by 5 minutes. Telephone information alone may not be sufficient to identify your animal. Often, physical descriptions that we receive do not match what our staff sees or how they would describe an 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 and you know exactly what your animal looks like. If your animal is at Panhandle Humane Society, he or she will be held for three business days, not including the day they arrive. After these three days the animal will become property of Panhandle Humane Society. Stray animals that are not claimed by their owner are made available for adoption. If an owner comes in after the stray hold has ended and the animal is still here, they can adopt their animal at our regular adoption fees if they don't have an adoption deposit/hold on them . Animals will be spayed or neutered prior to being adopted. We also recommend calling Communications at 308-632-7176 to report your lost pet.

Post your lost pet to our website. Post Lost Pet

You can use PawBoost website to list a lost or found animal! There is also a lot of good information regarding lost animals.

Facebook is another great resource for reporting a lost animal. Here are two area Facebook groups you may want to check out.  Lost and Found Pets of Scottsbluff and surrounding areas and PHS Lost And Found Scottsbluff NE PHS Staff does their best to post stray animals that have come into the shelter in our lost and found group, so make sure to keep an eye on this!

I've Found A Lost Animal

Have you found a stray animal that you're not sure what to do with? You can call the Police Department after hours at their non-emergency number to have them either pick up the pet or meet you at the shelter, or you may bring the pet in yourself during regular business hours.
