Proof of Ownership
Must provide the following in order to identify and reclaim lost pet:

  • Written proof of current dog registration/license for the area in which they live.

  • Rabies vaccination certificate from a licensed veterinarian. A rabies tag does not include the expiration date or the animal description, so it cannot serve as proof of current vaccination or ownership.

  • Veterinarian invoices and/or vaccination records from a licensed veterinarian.

  • Pedigree registries.

Owners can use photographs/video as proof of ownership, but please be patient as this method might require more than one picture and/or meeting with Admitting Manager.

We do require this information before releasing any pet. This is for your safety as well as ours to protect getting pets returned to their rightful owner.
