Frequently Asked Questions

 I lost or found a dog or cat with no identification tags. What do I do?

Bring the found animal by a local vet’s office and ask them to scan the pet for a microchip (id tag which the owner had placed under the pet’s skin).Contact your neighbors and postal carrier and let them know your pet is missing or that you have found a pet. Pets usually stay close to home and can sometimes get shut in a neighbor’s garage or shed.Contact area newspapers – some newspapers place lost/found ads for free.Create posters of your lost/found pet and post them everywhere – grocery stores, animal hospitals, shelters, pet supply stores, banks, coffee shops, gas stations, groomers, pet day care centers, schools, parks, police stations, libraries, and community bulletin boards.Email a description and photo to Gaston County’s Lost and Found at

What is the best breed of dog for me?

 This is an important question when considering a purebred dog. But even within breeds there’s enormous variety in the way a dog acts and reacts to the world around him. You will want to consider your lifestyle, the activity level required of the breed, the cost of preventative medications (flea/tick and heartworm) on a small vs. large breed, the cost of grooming and your backyard and available areas for exercise.And don’t forget to consider a mutt. They are often the best of several breeds and make wonderful pets. 

Where can I adopt a dog or cat?
