HSHV cannot accept stray animals from the City of Ann Arbor directly from the public without formal approval from the City of Ann Arbor Police Department.
Per City of Ann Arbor Animal Control Ordinance, stray and abandoned animals must be brought in by an Animal Control Officer or Police Officer.
In addition, HSHV cannot provide Animal Control related field services to the City of Ann Arbor, including the free pick-up of sick or injured wildlife without formal approval from the City of Ann Arbor Police Department.
Due to possible contagious disease spread including rabies, please do NOT handle sick wildlife on your own or allow pets to come into contact with them.
If you have an Animal Control issue, please contact the Ann Arbor Police Department for assistance at
734-994-2911 (non-emergency number).
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. If you do not get the help you need or are dissatisfied with this service in anyway, please send an email or call your Ann Arbor City Council Representatives at
734-794-6161. To send email to Ann Arbor City Council Members or the Mayor of Ann Arbor, go to A2gov.org.
If you find your animal after filing a report, please let us know by one of the following means: Call our Intake Dept at 734-661-3545, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We know that despite how careful we are, sometimes one of our furry friends wanders off and gets lost. HSHV is Washtenaw County's only stray animal holding facility, and we are always ready to assist owners with finding their pets, as well as members of the public who have been "found" by a stray. (A "stray" is simply another term for a lost animal found running loose without an owner.)
These pages are designed to assist our community members with these situations.
And, always remember, that identification, collars with tags and microchips, are your pets fastest ticket home! Cats, too, can safely wear collars with tags and are an easy way for us and your neighbors to know that your cat has a loving home.
All lost and found reports must be approved before being published for the public to see. Please allow up to 24 hours for your report to be visible on our website. Your report will expire after 90 days, but if you need or want to extend that time, please contact HSHV at (734) 661-3545. Also, if you have reunited with a lost or found pet please email us at email@example.com or call (734) 661-3545 so we can remove your report from the site.
