Pet Lost & Found

Did you lose or find a pet?  The first thing to do is submit a report so OAHS can match the animal with the family who is looking for them:

The Oshkosh Area Humane Society is contracted with the City of Oshkosh and surrounding townships to care for stray animals.  Is your animal at OAHS?  Click here to check the Found Strays at the Oshkosh Area Humane Society

Did you Lose a Pet?

Please fill out a Lost Dog or Lost Cat report online immediately or call 920.424.2128.  OAHS posts a photo of all stray animals coming in on the Facebook page: Found Strays at the Oshkosh Area Humane Society.  Owners are encouraged to visit the Oshkosh Area Humane Society to look for their pets, rather than call, as many animals look similar. Check online sites such as Craigslist or other animal re-homing pages.  File a report with Lost Dogs of Wisconsin or Lost Cats of Wisconsin.

All reports are kept on file for three months. If you have recovered your animal within that time frame, please contact us at 920.424.2128 or at so we may discard the "lost" report.  

Did you Find a Pet?

Please file a Found Dog or Found Cat report with OAHS. Don't assume a lost or stray pet has been intentionally abandoned or mistreated. *Please note it is against the law to keep a stray animal without first making a good-faith effort to find the owner.* Finders can either keep the pet until the owner is located or can surrender the pet to the Oshkosh Area Humane Society but please ALWAYS file a report to make sure every effort is made to find the pet's owner. Please bring the pet in to have it scanned for a microchip, another way of finding the pet's owner. Check online on sites such as Craigslist or Facebook pages such as Lost Dogs of Wisconsin or Lost Cats of Wisconsin to see if someone is searching for their lost pet.

WISCONSIN STRAY ANIMAL HOLDING TIME HAS BEEN REDUCED! Effective March 3, 2016, all stray animals entering an animal control facility or humane society with an animal control contract will have a FIVE (5) day stray hold period, four days plus the day of confiscation. This means that on day SIX (6) in custody, animals who have not been reclaimed may be adopted out or transferred to another facility for adoption.
