Our Services

Lost and Found

If you have lost an animal please contact us at the shelter. Animals that come in do not immediately go on our website to be available for adoption. If you call in or stop by we will be able to tell you if your pet was brought to us or if we have heard from anyone in the community that has found an animal.

If you have found an animal please bring them into the shelter and we will care for them until they are reclaimed by their owner.

Surrender an Animal

If you need to surrender your animal(s) please contact us at the shelter. We are an open-admission shelter for Queen Anne’s County residents and will take in your animal(s). Please bring in as much information about the animal(s) as possible including, vet records/ vaccination history, licensing, and personality descriptions.
