Lost & Found Pets
As soon as you realize your pet is missing contact Charlotte County Animal Control, the Animal Welfare League, and other area shelters. All animals picked up by Animal Control are brought to the Animal Welfare League. By law, stray animals become our property after 5 days and they may be placed for adoption.
If you have found a pet, you may call Animal Control at (941) 833-5690. They will pick up the animal and bring it to the Animal Welfare League where it will be posted on this site.
Don’t wait to report your missing pet.
Lost Pets will be placed on the website within 24 hours of their arrival at AWL and will remain on the site for 25 days. Your chances of finding your pet are greatly increased if you can include a picture. Check back often. If you see your pet on our website call us at (941) 625-6720 during our hours of operations.
