Daily Animal Pickups - NEW!
The Wichita Animal Shelter has a new way to view lost pets online. Animals admitted to the Wichita Animal Shelter are now being posted on the website http://www.wichita.gov/WPD/SupportServices/Pages/AnimalControl.aspx. Use the instructions below to search for lost pets at our shelter.
- Go to the website http://www.wichita.gov/WPD/SupportServices/Pages/AnimalControl.aspx.
- Animals admitted to the Wichita Animal Shelter are posted below under "Daily Animal Pickups". Most of the animals will have a picture accompanied with the date the animal was impounded to assist in proper identification and a timely return to the owner. If there is no picture and you suspect the animal may be yours, visit the Wichita Animal Shelter at 3303 N. Hillside.

- If you do not see your lost animal using this service, we recommend you visit the Wichita Animal Shelter at 3303 N.

You may call the Wichita Animal Shelter at 316-350-3366 for more information and tips on finding a lost pet, but remember that only YOU can identify your lost pet, so please visit the shelter at least every 3 days.
