What do I need to do if I find a stray animal?
If the animal is friendly, check for tags on its collar and contact the owner. A veterinarian or shelter can scan for a microchip. If a stray dog is running loose or you are able to contain it, an Animal Control Officer can pick it up. Call police dispatch at 479-751-4542. If you have found an animal and prefer to hold onto it until an owner can be found, please call the shelter and file a "Found Report".

However, once the animal has been in your possession for three days, you will need to make a surrender appointment should you choose to turn it over to the shelter.
