Lost and Found Pets

Please help us reunite lost pets with their owners. All animals brought into the shelter as stray are scanned for a microchip and held for at least 72 hours before being evaluated for adoption. Check this site often if you have lost your pet. The listing here is no guarantee the animal is still at our facility.

Lost and found pets should be reported to Union County Animal Services at 704-283-2308 or email ucadopt@unioncountync.gov Please include a picture of the pet when emailing with a full description, area lost/found and date the animal went missing or was found.

If you believe your lost pet is at the shelter, you may come to the shelter to view and identify your pet. We are located at 3340 Presson Rd. Monroe, NC 28112.
Our hours of operation are Monday-Friday 8:00am to 5:00pm and Saturday 10:00am to 3:00pm.
