Lost Dogs

A.H.P.P.A. wants to help the community reunite with lost and found pets: dogs, cats and other small animals who have been misplaced throughout Costa Rica.  We will do so with announcements to our Animal Shelter blog.

Pet owners whom love their pets and take care of them discover often something happens that makes a pet go missing.  If you have ever experienced the loss of a beloved pet, you know the terrible feeling and worry. Keeping an eye out for a lost pet is a most neighborly and kind thing to do.

Lost Pets

People who take the time to stop and collect an animal that appears lost, abandoned or injured are heroes in our book.  These kind souls might end up keeping the animal and caring for it themselves.  If they are unable to keep an animal long term, they need to find the animal a new home. We encourage postings to our Facebook page and our website for this purpose.

More often, lost and found animals are brought to us at the A.H.P.P.A. animal shelter. Either way, we post information here on our website and our Facebook page. If you’ve lost a pet please visit the Refugio animal shelter.
