If you are inquiring about lost animals we can not guarantee that the front desk staff or volunteers who are answering the telephone are aware of every animal in the shelter. In addition, the breed may be identified differently than the one you have identified for that animal. Please bring a PHOTO and description of your pet.
If you have lost an animal you are solely responsible for personally coming into the shelter and identifying the animal. You will be required to provide proof of ownership.
If you need to report a lost animal, would like to inquire about a particular animal, or have a request for general information please call the Durham County Animal Shelter at (919) 560-0640 during normal business hours.
