I found a stray pet outside of Loudoun County. Can I bring it to LCAS?

If you are a Loudoun resident who has found a lost pet outside the boundaries of Loudoun County then it is best to take the pet to the nearest shelter, rescue, or local veterinary office to see if they can house the pet until an owner is located. Please only bring a stray pet found outside the boundaries of Loudoun County to the Animal Services shelter as a last resort.

Most strays have loving families who are searching for them. The further a pet is taken from where it is found, the less likely they are to be reunited with their family. Sine one of every three pets will become lost in their lifetime, losing a pet can happen to even the most diligent pet parent. In the past, well-meaning citizens have brought pets from multiple states away to Loudoun County Animal Services. While we were able to find their owners, it required a lot of time and often great expense to get these pets home to their families.
