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. 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 the 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 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. If an owner comes in after the stray hold has ended, they can adopt their animal at our regular adoption fees. Animals will be spayed or neutered prior to being adopted.

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!
