Is your pet missing?
If your dog or cat slips away and is lucky enough to be picked up by an Animal Control officer or brought to the shelter by a Good Samaritan, your pet will be taken to the VVHS shelter in Cottonwood.
VVHS understands losing a pet is a stressful time for both you and your missing pet and we try to reunite you with your pet as soon as possible. First, check our website and fill out the Lost Animal Form with as much information as possible and provide a clear photo. If your pet comes through our shelter and we can match it with your form, we will contact you, while we provide your pet with safe shelter. In the meantime, put up posters and check with neighbors and post the information and photo on social media.
If your pet has an up-to-date microchip, we will contact you. Be sure to report the pet missing to the chip manufacturer. Check our Facebook page, the Humane Society of Sedona’s website, your local Nextdoor.com page, as well as Lost Pets of Northern Arizona, and Lost and Found Pets of the Verde Valley. We recommend that you check in with us regularly to make sure your pet hasn’t been brought in and not linked with your report. Sometimes descriptions are difficult to match.
Come to the shelter at 1520 West Mingus Avenue in Cottonwood during open hours to identify your pet. There, you can pay the required recovery fees and celebrate a happy reunion.
