Wash Humane on what to do If You Found an Animal

If you have found a lost or abandoned animal, please contact the Washington Humane Society as we may be able to provide guardian information if the guardian has filed a Lost Report with us.

If you are able to safely house the animal while you wait for a guardian to come forward:

1.Call 202-576-6664 (option 2) and file a Found Report so that we can connect a guardian with you when they call. If you choose this option, we encourage you to bring the animal to the adoption center to be scanned for a microchip and to be photographed for the website.

2.File a lost report online with this form. Upon submitting, call 202-576-6664 to confirm receipt, then send a photo of the pet to

3.Many forms of ID tags are traceable so please alert the WHS representative to any ID, vaccination or microchip tag you see. If we are able to identify the animal remotely by researching an ID tag, and you elect to retain the animal while we locate the guardian, a photograph of the pet can be submitted to in a jpeg format.

4.Flyers placed in your neighborhood can aid in reuniting a pet with his/her guardian as well as posting on Craigslist under the lost/found community page.
