Lost and Found Pets
Last Updated on May 22 2013 9:07 am
Welcome to our Lost and Found Pets Section! We put many lost and found pets on the radio every day for our listeners, and post each of them here as well. We know you love your pets, and we're happy to provide this free, local service to help you get your extra family members back!
If you live in Effingham County, Animal Control may have picked up your animal. It's always a good idea to check with them before submitting it to us. They're available Monday-Friday 8 a.m.-4 p.m., at 347-5695. This is especially important if the animal has been micro-chipped.
When submitting a lost or found animal to us, please don't forget to include where you lost or found it, and any details like whether or not it has a collar on...something that will hopefully help the owner identify it!
NEW! You can now send a photo of the animal when submitting!
CLICK HERE to submit a lost or found animal online to us! Note: submissions do not automatically appear. They are reviewed and posted by our staff.
