Animal Shelter

Daily Animal Pickups

You can view lost pets online! Animals admitted to the Wichita Animal Shelter are posted on the website, 24 Pet Connect. Use the provided instructions to search for lost pets at our shelter.

  • 24 Pet Connect website
  • Enter your Zip Code or City name in the appropriate field and click the "Find Shelters" search button.
  • Check the box next to "Wichita Animal Shelter" and click the "Search Now" button.
  • Click the "I Lost My Pet" button.
  • Click the button for the type of animal that you have lost (Dog, Cat, or Other)
  • You may choose to narrow your search by breed, gender, size, age, and predominant color at this time but please keep in mind the more narrow your search, the fewer results you will receive. If you do not specify any criteria in the search fields, and just click the "Search Now" button, you will be able to browse all of the entries from the Shelter. It is a much broader search but improves your chances of finding your lost pet. Please remember that your description of the animal may be different from the description posted on the website. We advise that you keep your search as broad as possible. If you have lost a pet, we still advise that you visit the Wichita Animal Shelter regularly.
  • Most of the animals will have a picture accompanied by the date the animal was impounded to assist in proper identification and a timely return to the owner. If the animal listing does not have a picture, and you suspect that the animal may be yours, visit the Wichita Animal Shelter at 3303 N Hillside.
  • If you find your animal on the website, call the Wichita Animal Shelter at 316-350-3366 and notify staff. They will need the animal number displayed to the right of the picture.

If you do not see your lost animal using this service, we recommend you visit the Wichita Animal Shelter at 3303 N Hillside (K-96 and Hillside) during business hours to make sure the animal wasn't picked up. Lost and stray animals are only held for 3 days starting the day after the animal is impounded. 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.
