Stray Animals & COVID-19 Restrictions

June 8th, 2020

What should you do if you have found a stray animal while COVID-19 restrictions are in place?


Post them! Oftentimes owners can be located through social media and word of mouth! Both links below have helped several lost pets be reunited with their families while also preventing unnecessary and stressful traveling to the WHS center.  


Notify! Call Watauga County Animal Control to fill out a found report - (828) 262-1672. 


If you are not able to locate an owner, call WHS to arrange a time to bring the pet in - (828) 264-7865. This helps ensure that someone will be able to assist you when you arrive!
