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 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
  • 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.


  2. Found — female yellow lab mix puppy with a collar but no tags found on 46 east in greensburg. Very sweet and gentle!
