Found Pets

Thank you for helping out lost pets in your community!  The GAHS takes in stray animals from the following municipalities:  Auburn, Canton, Greene, Hebron (cats only), Leeds, Lewiston, Livermore, Minot, New Gloucester, Turner, and Wales.  

It is a good idea to alert your town animal control officer or law enforcement about the stray pet you found, because they may already be in contact with the owner who is searching for their pet.

Other Animal Control Officers by Town

Stray animals can be brought to us during our normal shelter hours. We’ll need some basic information from you, as well as details as to where the pet was found and in what circumstances.  Please note that a photo ID is required to bring in a stray pet to our facility.

Please note that many owned cats are allowed to free-roam outside and aren’t necessarily lost.  Please ask around your neighborhood to ensure you aren’t bringing your next-door neighbors cat who was out for a stroll to the shelter.
