What to do if your pet is lost.
Owners of lost pets should visit Mesa County Animal Services and Roice-Hurst Humane Society at least every other day to see if their pet has been picked up or brought to one of these shelters. Because no person can identify a dog but the owner and descriptions are subjective, we cannot give out information about animals in our shelter over the phone.
If you have lost a pet, please visit our shelter during the following hours:
- Mon, Tues, Thur, Fri 11 a.m. - 5 p.m.
- Wednesday 11 a.m. - 6 p.m.
- Saturday 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.
- Sunday noon - 2 p.m.

Keep a current photo of your pet. Use that photo to post fliers in the area and veterinary practices. In addition, you can post a flyer about your missing pet on our Animal Services bulletin board.
If your pet is micro-chipped, make sure to keep your contact information current.
Your license tag provides the best way to get your lost pet back home to you! Remember to place your County license tag on your pet's collar - then keep the collar on your pet! To secure the tag on the collar or to keep it from making noise, you may use a piece of tape.
As an option, read the “found” ads and consider placing a “lost” ad in the local newspapers.
Don't give up!!! Keep looking for your lost animal. Sometimes it takes weeks or months for them to be found.
