Lost and Found Animals

The Portsmouth Humane Society has created this website in order to consolidate lost and found reports and to help effectively and efficiently reunite pets with their owner(s). If you have lost or found an animal, please create an account and make a detailed post of the animal so we have your contact information and can better assist with getting the pet back home. Stray animals at our facility are automatically uploaded to the website upon intake. If you do not have access to the Internet or are having trouble creating a report, please visit our shelter during regular business hours to fill out a report in person. If you have specific questions about this process, you can email our Adoption Office Coordinator at frontoffice@portsmouthhumanesociety.org.

Please use the form below to search our list of Lost and Found Animals. If you have lost or found an animal and would like to list it on our site, please select Add a Lost Animal or Add a Found Animal (you will be prompted to log in or create an account).*Posts created by citizens are approved Sunday through Thursday. If you are missing your pet, it is very important that you physically come into our shelter for a walk-through. We highly recommend visiting our shelter as often as possible (in addition to monitoring our website) until you find your pet.

Reclaiming a Pet:
Animals can be reclaimed during normal business hours, as well as 12pm–5pm on Tuesdays.


There is no PHS reclaim fee for pets reclaimed within 24 hours of intake. 
$25.00 – First day
$10.00 – Each additional day
Any veterinary care provided by an animal hospital will be the pet owner’s responsibility upon redemption.

All animals brought in as strays are given a general health exam and vaccinated upon intake.
