BARC Uvalde

Lost/Found and Stray Animals

If you have a stray animal you cannot house and you are located within the city limits, please call Uvalde Animal Control dispatch at 830.278.9147 for information about impounding the animal. It’s often difficult to tell if an animal is owned or a stray, so it’s best to assume they have an owner and to give that individual a chance to find their missing pet.

BARC Uvalde is not affiliated with Animal Control and we do not admit stray pets.

If you choose to care for the animal, please provide animal control with the information they would need to possibly reunite a lost pet with its owner.

Post the pet on your personal Facebook page along with some basic information about the pet that you found. Retain a few details that only the animal’s owner would know so that you can verify someone claiming to own the animal. We feature lost/found pets on our Facebook page. Be sure that your post is set to “public” and simply share the post to our page. We will contact you if we need any additional information before we post it to our main page. If you do not have Facebook, emailed information can be posted to BARC’s page for you.
