NOTE: Lost pets can be picked up by: (1) the Tulsa Animal Shelter, (2) the SPCA, or (3) Animal Aid.
These are separate organizations. You should contact each of them, and GO to the City Animal Shelter
(see directions at www.tulsa-animalshelter.org).
Notify Animal Aid Lost & Found immediately. Animal Aid is the only organization in Tulsa that stands ready to take in all injured animals, day or night. Your report will be carefully checked against the description of evey animal we take in and every found report made to us. We operate our Lost & Found server full time and strive to collect and match as much information as possible. You can report a lost pet to Animal Aid by email from this site, by FAX, or by phone.
Circulate flyers door-to-door and post flyers with the lost animal's description and/or picture. Be sure to include your daytime and night phone number. Walk completely around your block with the flyers. A lost animal may be able to pick up your scent!
Talk to your mailman, trash haulers, and neighbors. If you are looking for a lost cat, be sure to query your neighbors closely about any garage, shed, or basement doors they may have had open. Ask their permission to look inside any of those places that may have been open.
If you are looking for an animal that is partially deaf or blind, look carefully below and behind all bushes and objects that the animal could use to hide in. Often, blind or deaf animals will seek a safe place, in the immediate vicinity, and not move at all.
Cats are most active at night and in the early mornings. Get up before first light and walk around.
Go to the shelter. Go every day. Be sure you are allowed to look in the isolation area. Double check with the shelter employees
that you have been allowed to look in every room. You can find a list of local shelters at specialty & rescue groups or go
There are dozens of animal welfare groups in Tulsa. The Animal Aid Lost & Found service will be able to provide you with all
the numbers that may be useful. Call each and every number you are given.
Send or take your flyers to every single veterinarian clinic in the phone book.
Don't give up. Animal Aid has reunited owners with pets that have been lost for months. Be sure to periodically update any lost & found services you may have contacted, especially if your pet is recovered.
