Found An Animal?

  • Most local vets have the ability to check an animal for a microchip. This is one of the best ways to reunite people with their pets.
  • Post the found animal on both PetFBI.com and Pet FBI's Facebook Page
  • If the owner cannot be found and you are not in a position to hold on to the animal for any period of time, we ask that you please make every effort to find a "no kill" shelter to take the animal to. By state law, the Franklin & Fairfield County shelters are only required to allow 3 days for the animal to be claimed, before putting the animal up for adoption, or euthanizing it.
