I lost my dog!

I found a dog!

need to re-home my dog!

What do I do?

If you are trying to find a home for a dog who is not already spayed or neutered, consider getting that done. Shelters, rescues and individuals are all more likely to take in a dog that is not going to get pregnant or get another dog pregnant. Calhoun County provides reduced cost spay/neuter procedures through their “Snip-It Tickets” program. The cost to get a ticket is only $15. For more information go to the County’s Spay/Neuter Program website.

If you are thinking about re-homing a dog because of behavioral issues, consider going to a professional dog trainer for help. They can do an evaluation of the dog and make suggestions on how to manage or change the behavior. Encore Enrichment Center for Shelter Dogs in Anniston offers these services.

For more information on Encore’s dog training classes, go to the Training Services tab at our website.


  1. Contact your servicing animal shelter (see list). They take in stray dogs so you can report a found dog, or ask about your lost dog. They also take in dogs that their owners surrender to be re-homed, but if they are full, they might not take it right away.


  2. There is one private shelter in Calhoun County that takes in some owner surrender or stray dogs if they are not full, and if the dog seems adoptable (not aggressive or overly fearful). It is the League for Animal Welfare, 2726 Bynum Leatherwood Rd, Anniston AL36201. Phone 256-238-0380.

    They are on Facebook @TheLeague4AnimalWelfare.


  3. For lost/found dogs, you can make up a flyer with a picture of the dog and the location where it was lost or found. Include your contact information. Leave flyers at local vets offices or community centers. You could go door to door in the area where the dog was lost/found and ask people if they know anything about the dog.
