From July 3 through July 10, The Animal Foundation will be waiving reclaiming fees on all lost and stray animals that end up at the shelter during the busy Fourth of July holiday period.

The waiver does not include confiscates, bites, or other situations as dictated by Animal Control. Last year during a similar period, The Animal Foundation took in 530 lost and frightened animals, many of whom had escaped while seeking safety from loud firework displays. 

Lost pets brought to The Animal Foundation are legally required to be held for 72 hours. The waived fees during the holiday promotion, made possible through participation by the city of Las Vegas, the city of North Las Vegas and Clark County, include fees for the impound, boarding, rabies vaccination, spaying and neutering, and microchip, as set by the respective jurisdictions. 

The Animal Foundation’s Lost and Found Department is located at 655 North Mojave in Las Vegas. It is open daily from 10am-7pm and is available by phone at 702-384-3333 x932 or email at lost@animalfoundation.com. To claim your lost animal at our shelter, you must bring proof of ownership (e.g. a photo of your pet, veterinary records, proof of rabies vaccine, or microchip number).  Proof of citizenship is not required.
