Report lost or found animals immediately! City ordinance 4-182: it is unlawful to possess a stray animal for more than 24 hours without first reporting such possession to the Animal Shelter.
Impounded animals are held for 3 days and are then available for disposition. Persons reporting lost or found animals are required to report the lost animal in person or online; phone reports will not be taken. Please check the shelter often or check the Owasso Lost and Found Pets Facebook page for information. Please email the animal shelter to report a lost or found animal.
