SCRAPS provides an online listing of all currently impounded animals and a public lost and found pet report list. You can view these lists to determine if your lost pet was picked up by SCRAPS and is currently at the shelter or see if someone has reported your pet as found.
If you post an animal as lost or found on the public list please be aware - SCRAPS is not responsible for matching any pet posted on this site with animals that may be at our shelter or at another shelter in our area. Please see our Impounded Animals page for information regarding animals currently at our shelter.
