Lost and Found Pets:
If you see a stray animal, please call us first. We ask that you not pick it up, take it to your
home, or bring it to the shelter; we will dispatch an Animal Services Officers to come to get it.
If you have lost your pet, please watch our Facebook page where we post all new incoming animals to the shelter. If we have your animal, please call us to make an appointment to come to pick it up. As always, we encourage everyone to microchip their animals. This helps us identify and return lost pets to their owners very quickly.
Schertz Animal Services holds stray animals for a minimum of at least 72 hours to allow owners
a chance to find their lost pets. If the animal is not claimed in that time period, it becomes the
property of Schertz Animal Services and may be made available for adoption any time after the
stray hold period.
