Lost and Found Pets

If you've lost a pet please call us at (641) 792-5407 or stop by the shelter during our normal hours of operation.  If a lost pet has an ID tag or a microchip, we will make all reasonable efforts to contact the owner. 


Helpful hints for finding a lost pet:


  • Act fast!  In situations where serious illness/injury or aggression are a concern, the shelter may not be able to keep your pet beyond the normal holding period. 
  • Contact local veterinarians.  Some may have "Lost & Found" bulletin boards in their offices.
  • Search the "Lost & Found" section of your local newspaper.
    -Also, submit your own lost pet ad to the paper, such as  The Newton Daily News. They are very helpful in  running ads for lost pets and they run these ads free of  charge!
  • Notify family members and friends who are familiar with your pet.
  • Look for flyers and post flyers (if permitted).
  • Dont' give up!  Some pets are found after months of searching.



One of the main reasons that pets will stray is that they haven't been spayed or neutered.  Spaying or neutering  will eliminate your pets reproductive instincts and will help us in our goal of reducing overpopulation in our county and shelter.


Reclaim Fees:


If your pet is picked up during or after normal business hours, there will be a $50.00 reclaim fee for the first day, and $12.00 for every day thereafter that the pet was boarded with us.  

All Animals must be current on rabies and/or newton city tag( if applicable) or they will be provided with them at the cost of the owner before leaving the shelter. 


All animals are vaccinated and dewormed upon intake.  Additionally, they are provided food, water, shelter and in some cases veterinary care during their stay.  


Please note that any dog not reclaimed after 7 days will become the property of Jasper County Animal Rescue League & Humane Society.


Any cats not reclaimed after 3 days will become the property of Jasper County Animal Rescue League & Humane Society.
