Lost & Found

If you have lost or found an animal, here's what to do:

1. Act quickly!

2. If the Found animal is wearing a rabies tag, call the phone number on the tag first.

3. Have a Found animal scanned for a microchip at the Humane Society, Animal Shelter or veterinarian's office; this could quickly lead you to the owner.

4. Call and visit the Murray/Calloway County Animal Shelter at (270) 759-4141.

5. Email the pet's photo, description (approximate size, gender, color, distinguishing marks or features) and contact numbers to the Humane Society at humanesociety@murray-ky.net. along with any other pertinent information. The Humane Society will send a lost/found notice to their 2000+ Animal Advocates.

6. Call Murray Ledger & Times at (270) 753-1916 (or fax 753-1927) to run a free classified ad for one day.
