Lost and Found Pets

Any missing dog or cat should be reported to the Southbury Animal Control. Please call the office at (203) 262-0613 and we will log all relevant information. Please remember to contact us if your pet returns home; otherwise, we will keep the information for seven (7) consecutive days.

If your pet becomes lost, you should also:

  • Post the information on Southbury Animal Control's Facebook page
  • Notify area Veterinarians and area town Animal Control Departments
  • Place an Ad in the local paper or post flyers
  • For cat owners: If your cat uses a litter box, DO NOT clean it but instead put it outside in a visible area of your yard. Chances are your cat will return home. Do not place food or water outside as this will attract all kinds of animals.

Southbury Animal Control does not respond to or pick up stray cats. If you have a stray or unwanted cat, please contact the Connecticut Humane Society for assistance and referral to additional resources.

Animal Control will get involved in cat incidents were a human has been bitten or scratched and the cat needs to be quarantined. Animal Control will also care for sick or injured cats when the owner is unknown and will investigate incidents of cruelty or neglect.

If you find a pet that doesn't belong to you, you should immediately contact the Southbury Animal Control at (203) 262-0613.
