Help! I Lost My Cat
While we primarily work with feral colonies rather than owned cats, occasionally we do come across a socialized kitty who probably is missing their home!
Our goal is to get these kitties back with their families safely.
WE DO NOT HAVE A PHONE. If you believe we have found your cat, please contact us via email with the following:
Microchip number (if applicable)
A thorough description of the cat's appearance or a photo
When and where your cat was last seen
The circumstances under which your cat went missing
Stray Cat Procedures
The following procedures are established in accordance with NH state law.
Cats with identification (microchip, collar, or identifying tattoo) will be held for a period of 7 days for owner reclamation.
Owners will be required to provide proof of ownership which may include (but are not limited to) a photo ID, photographs of the cat, rabies certificate, and/or veterinary records. There are applicable care fees for cats housed overnight.
If a cat with identification is still in custody after 7 days, the owners will be notified by certified mail of the intention to consider the cat as abandoned, effective 7 days after the mailing date.
Cats without identification are not required by law to be held for owner reclamation for any period of time. Allowing reclamation of a cat without identification is at the discretion of shelter management. There are applicable care fees for cats housed overnight.
IF A MICROCHIP LEADS TO AN ADOPTION FACILITY, the cat will not be released to an owner until we are able to make contact with the facility and confirm ownership and verify that no adoption contract obligations have been violated.
We acknowledge this may be an inconvenience, but it is unfortunately necessary due to an increase in pet thefts and falsely registered microchips.
If a stray cat is determined to be grossly suffering or having sustained injuries that are incompatible with life, they may be humanely euthanized prior to the end of the reclamation period. This is at the discretion of a veterinarian or animal control officer.
We do not euthanize for length of stay or overcrowding.
