Lost Pet Listing

Anne Arundel County law requires all stray animals found in the County be turned over to Anne Arundel County Animal Care & Control, this helps create one central location for owners to search.   If your pet is lost we suggest you:

  • Text LOSTPET to 56525 for tips (see details)
  • Go to Animal Care & Control at 411 Maxwell Frye Road in Millersville
  • View the found animals at the shelter and fill out a lost pet card

Please do not assume that the staff at Animal Care & Control monitors and is able to match the postings on the website.  Owners will be the best able to identify a match of their lost pet with a found pet.  

Owners of missing pets are encouraged to report lost pets on social media, check with local veterinary hospitals and visit shelters in bordering jurisdictions to look for their pet, especially if they reside near a county border.
