Every year, thousands of dogs and cats escape from their homes and are never reunited with their rightful owners. The burden of finding and recovering a displaced dog or cat rests solely on the shoulders of the owner, who, in most cases, is not trained in how or where to search. People who lose their beloved dogs and cats need all the help they can get in order to achieve a successful reunion.

When you’ve found a pet, remember to always put your safety first. Don’t attempt to pick up or contain an animal that is acting aggressive. If you feel unsafe handling the animal, contact RHS Animal Protection Services for assistance at 306-777-7700.

It’s important to assume that the animal you’ve found does have people who love them and miss them very much. It’s easy to jump to conclusions about the animal based on their physical condition or behavior. Many animals deteriorate quickly when separated from their families and appear neglected or under-nourished. As well, some animals are naturally shy or fearful of new situations.  This doesn’t necessarily mean that they’ve been abused or treated poorly.

Lost dogs and cats that are not returned to their families take up valuable space in our animal shelters, rescue groups, or wind up in feral cat colonies. When you find a stray dog or cat, assume that someone is looking for that particular companion animal and follow the steps below to support a successful reunion before taking steps to find the animal a new home.

Locating the Owner
1. Check to see if the animal has any form of identification – city license, tattoo, rabies tag, personalized identification tag, or microchip which can be used to locate the owner through the Regina Humane Society Lost and Found Department.
2. Contact the Regina Humane Society Lost and Found Department to report the found pet or complete one online here.
3. Create a Found Profile and check Lost Profiles for the pet you have found at the following:

4. Post notices in the area where the animal was found with a description or photo and information about how you can be contacted.
5. Ask neighbours, the mail carrier or children playing in the area if they recognize the cat or dog you have found, or if they know of a household that recently lost a pet.
6. If someone claims to be the animal’s owner, insist on identification and proof of ownership before releasing him.

If you end up reuniting a lost pet with its family, we want to congratulate you on a job well done! You not only helped make a family very happy, you also helped prevent needless suffering, potential injury (or worse) or homelessness, and you have prevented one more pet from ending up in an animal shelter or rescue group.

If you are unable to successfully reunite lost pets with their owner, stray pets can be relinquished to the Regina Humane Society located approximately 3 km north of the City of Regina on Armour Road. Armour Road can be accessed from Highway 6 (Albert Street) or Pasqua Street. If transportation is not possible, please contact RHS Animal Protection Services at 306-543-6363 to arrange for pick-up within a 30 km radius of the City of Regina.

The Regina Humane Society will accept dogs from rural areas in addition to the City of Regina.  At this time, the Society is unable to accept cats and kittens from outside a 30 km radius of the City of Regina.  In these cases, the applicable Rural Municipality office should be contacted, as well as any local shelters or rescues in your area.
