Lost Pets

Licensing and microchipping is the best way to ensure the safe return home of your pet if it is lost or has strayed from home.

What You Can Do

  • Visit the Everett Animal Shelter (EAS). EAS serves the jurisdictions below and is Snohomish County's contracted facility for shelter services. They are located at 333 Smith Island Road, Everett and are are open seven days a week from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. except on observed holidays.
  • EAS recommends owners visit the shelter in person and look through their "strays in the shelter book" as well as their "found pets not at the shelter book."
  • Visit the EAS website daily for updates on new arrivals to the shelter and submit a lost pet report to include a photo of your pet.
  • As some people who find lost pets shelter the pet in their home until the owner can be found, we encourage you to put up flyers, check with local veterinarians, other rescue groups in your area, and place ads on PetFinder, FidoFinder and other social networking sites.
  • Even if you live in an area serviced by EAS we encourage you to check all local shelters when searching for your lost pet.

What We Do

When an Animal Control Officer finds a stray animal, we try to identify and contact the owner. This is why a pet license is so important. A licensed pet can be returned to you faster and you can avoid costs associated with sheltering your pet. If the Animal Control Officer is unable to contact you or the pet does not have ID, a microchip or a license, we will transport the animal to the Everett Animal Shelter for safekeeping.

Licensing and microchipping your pet helps ensure your pet gets home safely
