I found a stray animal, what do I do?

Whenever you find a stray animal you need to report it within 24 hours and bring that animal to the shelter or contact the shelter at 435-336-3985 so an officer can come to get the animal to be under our care during its mandatory 5-day stray hold. During that time we will make every effort to search for its owner. Further questions? Please call the shelter at 435-336-3985 or email animalcontrol@summitcounty.org.
