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. Then he or she can bring the receipt to the Shelter, or have the vet fax it to us.
  • There is a $10 per night boarding fee
  • Other fees may be assessed based on whether the Animal Control Officer picked up the pet, and whether it is determined to be a repeat offense or neglect.

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 14 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
  • Tractor Supply and Rural King in Greensburg have boards where notices can be posted for free
  • The Decatur County Court House has a notice board in the East end entrance.

    • The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.


    • disse:Once I initially commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get 4 emails with the identical comment. Is there any approach you may remove me from that service? Thanks!

  7. Lost older black lab mix (male). Has arthritis in hips, lost over a year ago in Greensburg in the neighborhood around Greensburg High School. Not giving up hope. Please call 812-212-9683


  8. Our Pug is missing. We fear he was stolen for his possible cash value or future value. He is NOT neutered, and is around 3 years old. His name is Nimoy. He responds to my voice saying “out”. We live on Park Road. We saw one strange vehicle right around when he disappeared – a tan or light green 2016 Nissan Quest (or similar vehicle). This man did something in a neighbor’s driveway in a matter of seconds such as pickup something. It wasn’t seen but heard. Car doors were slammed. As I tried to figure out what he was doing from my backyard I then saw him driving rapidly away with no other person inside. I caught a 5 second glance. The white man was young with dark hair. Shortly afterwards our pug was nowhere to be found. Later we discovered no one knew that Guy. If you know this guy and he just got or sold you a pug it’s stolen from us. Otherwise he might be still be lost around Greensburg. Any info call 812-621-1508. Text if no answer. We have no real proof of theft just a hunch. Nothing else makes sense. Catch this dirtbag! Before your pets go missing too.


  9. Your article seems to suggest that introverts struggle with leadership roles “put in a position to lead or instruct can send us into a panic” – I actually find that quite offensive. Introverts are not necessarily bad presenters, leaders or instructors, likewise, being an extrovert does not make you good at those things.


  10. Hi, I am looking for my Australian Shepard, his name is Ace and he has green eyes. He also has thick hair that is light brown with dark brown spots, he may have a pink collar on but it may also be blue. He is a very nice dog and very playful and with him missing it is really taking its toll on our family. Please contact me at+18125933337 if you have any information.


  11. Hoping to find my lost kitty. She’s a chocolate tortoise shell calico. Hey name is Fae, but we’d call her Fae-fae, most of the time. She got out. The neighbor’s kids saw her, but couldn’t catch her. She hasn’t been seen, in a while. Her sister, who got out, at the same time, came back. She’s got a ginger blaze, on her shoulder.


  12. My fiancee’s cat, “Tache” hasn’t come home. He got out several days ago. He is normally an indoor-outdoor cat, but we just moved into a new place so he doesn’t know this neighborhood. We’ve tried searching the neighborhood, checking with neighbors here as well as our old place. No luck.

    He is orange and white. White face with an orange mustache (hence his nickname “tache”)
    Adult male (approx 7-8yrs old)
    He has a long, lean body.
    He’s very friendly.

    Pleassssse if you know anything, let me know. My cell number is 661-348-1102
