I found a lost puppy on the street with no tags, what can I do?

There is no name, phone number or address. I took the dog home, gave her a bath, fed her and went back to where I picked her up and waited for 1 hr.. nobody showed up. Should I call the police? Will they put her in a shelter? I'd rather keep her at my house and wait until somebody puts up a lost dog sign, then contact them. Is this okay? Please help.

  • Call the local vets offices and the shelters and give them a description of the dog. Give them your name and number so that if the dog has a n owner than they can contact you. Good luck.

  • Call the shelter and tell them, and ask what the reporting a lost dog process is where you live ( it is different in different places) that way you can call all those places to report a found pup...where I live that would include shelter, animal control officer, police, local housing kennels

  • Contact your local shelter and ask about the legal requirements to fostering a found dog. The dog is considered lost property and there are laws about what the finder must do before being allowed to call "keepers".

  • Keep it and put out fliers for a list puppy. Don’t give out too much info because someone can claim to be the owner and then sell the puppy.

    I would just say, lost puppy found. When someone claims to have lost it, ask for the description of the dog or breed.

  • i'd say take her to the vet to see if they've got a chip. if that doesn't work i'd keep her for safety and put posters up in the area saying that if it's your dog then to call this number with your number on it. you should find a feature about the dog though that only the owner would know and don't show it in the poster picture so not anyone can just call up and be like "hey that's my dog". that's the best thing I can think of. even then it can be risky though since someone could take a lucky guess and get it right.
