The streets are a very dangerous place for a dog and someone is missing this family member. Thank you for saving it. If you have found a healthy animal, we would ask that you do your best to try and help reunite the animal with its owner. If the animal has a tag with a licence number on it, 311 may provide the owner’s contact information if the owner has given us permission to release it.
Take the dog for a walk throughout your neighbourhood and ask neighbours if they recognize it. Hanging posters on mailboxes and putting leaflets in doors is also a successful way of tracking down a dog’s owner.
If you have found a lost dog, complete a search for it on the City’s Lost and Found Pet page to see if it has been reported as lost. If it hasn’t, you can add a post.
Look for a City of Edmonton tag and call 311 to see if they have contact information for the owner.
During business hours, call 311 or book an appointment to drop off the dog at the Animal Care and Control Centre.
If after hours, please keep the animal safe until morning or if the dog exhibits any of these symptoms they need to be seen promptly: profuse bleeding, trouble breathing, obvious fracture (limb at unnatural angle, bone protruding), altered mentation (including unconscious), inability to move or seizing. Take the dog to Vet ER Emergency Hospita: 825-480-4481. Vet ER offers 24 hours emergency services and receives injured lost pets on the City's behalf.
