Lost-Found Pets

If your pet ends up at the Greensburg & Decatur County Animal Shelter,  you have 3 business days to claim it. If it is not claimed within that time, it becomes the property of the Shelter. Please contact the shelter directly by calling 812-663-9081 as soon as you are aware that your pet is missing. (NOT by Facebook or this website).

Claiming Your Pets:

For owners to claim their pets the following requirements apply:

  • Owners must provide a valid Rabies Vaccination Certificate. (Indiana law requires owners to keep the rabies vaccination (1yr or 3yr on dogs and cats current). If the rabies vaccination is not current the owner may go to one of our local vets and PRE-PAY for the shot, and then bring the receipt to the Shelter
  • There is a $10 per night boarding fee
  • Other fees may be assessed based on whether or not the Animal Control Officer picked up the pet and if there is repeat offense or neglect issues.

Finding Your Lost Pets:

At the Shelter, we maintain a Lost and Found Board:

  • Call us or stop by and we will post your information for 30 days
  • WTRE, a local radio station, has a “Tree County Trader” hour on weekday mornings. This is a good way to broadcast information about your lost or found pet. Visit: http://www.wtrecommunity.com or call (812) 663-3000
  • Lost or Found Pets can be listed in the Greensburg Daily News classified section: (888) 663-1063 http://www.greensburgdailynews.com
