I FOUND A PET

MCPAWS accepts strays during our normal business hours. If possible, please call the shelter before bringing a stray animal to the shelter. 

 

If you’ve found a stray animal outside of our regular business hours:

  • Post a photo of the found animal and a short description on our Facebook page. Owners looking for a lost pet will often check here.
  • Check with your neighbors – they may be missing the pet you found!
  • If you’ve found a dog inside McCall City Limits – call the McCall Police Department (208 634-7144) or Valley County Dispatch (208 382-5160) and a police office may be able to help.

 

If you’ve found a cat:

  • Is the cat calm, friendly, and healthy in appearance? He or she may not be lost! If it is safe to do so, leave the cat where he or she is. Research shows that these types of kitties are much more likely to make it home on their own, versus being brought to the shelter.
  • Have you found a young kitten(s)? Take a closer look – but don’t touch! If they seem healthy, clean, active and are not in a hazardous location hands off! Mama cat is likely very close by. Leave the kittens alone and watch from a distance. If mama cat does not return in 12-24 hours, bring the kittens indoors and call the shelter. You can learn more about how to help Community Cats (and kittens) here (link).
  • Is the cat skittish and won’t let you touch him/her? This is likely a community cat (feral). MCPAWS is not able to accept community cats as strays – please do not bring them to the shelter. We can still help! Learn more about our Community Cats Program.
