Port Angeles Pet Posse
Port Angeles Pet Posse was formed to help others reunite with their pets. Our founder realized that our community needed assistance with how to start a search and rescue for lost/found pets and owners. At the time there was nowhere to turn or resources available. Pet Posse's first search was in November 2014. Our volunteers give of their time to assist owners in searching and finding their pets. Searches are at no cost to the owner, although the owner is expected to cover the costs of flyers and, if needed, and assist the searchers.
As of 2/11/2017, 906 pets have been reunited with their owners since November 2014. Please see our page on Facebook. All Lost and Found animals are on that page and are shown on this website from FB on the About page: https://www.facebook.com/Port-Angeles-Pet-Posse-710080722408897/
8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Closed on Sunday. You can still leave messages for us after that time and we will get back to you when we open the next business day.
IF YOUR PET IS MISSING OR YOU HAVE FOUND A PET
Please, if you have a missing pet or have found a pet and would like our help, call us at 360-775-5154. Calling us is the fastest way to get our volunteers helping you find your lost pet. An intake is required before your pet's information is posted to our page on FB. We do not monitor our FB or this page 24/7.
Port Angeles Pet Posse is a volunteer group that works with owners to find their lost pets or found pets looking for their "lost" owners. Pet Posse volunteers are unpaid, donating their time because they know how difficult it can be to lose a pet.
Pet owners are strongly encouraged to put a collar with ID tag on their pets or microchip and register the microchip to make it faster and easier to reunite your pet with you. If your dog has a micro-chip, please be sure to pay the yearly fee for the service through the microchip company and keep your information current. Even a rabies tag on a collar helps! Having these tools also helped provide proof that you have legal ownership of the pet.
ANIMALS OTHER THAN CATS OR DOGS:
We do not rescue wild animals, i.e., raccoons, birds and other wildlife. These animals should be reported to the appropriate authorities. Contact Northwest Wildlife and Raptor Center at their phone number 360-681-2283 or their website http://nwraptorcenter.com/.
We will not pick up feral cats, dogs or animals roaming at large or go onto someone's property without permission for a search. It is our intent to be respectful to the property owners.
For Horses: Please contact Olympic Peninsula Equine Rescue at 360-207-1688.
Animals such as salamanders and other wildlife native to the State of Washington are illegal to have in as “pets”. Please do not take these animals out of their natural habitats.
WE ARE A NON-PROFIT 501©3 CHARITABLE ORGANIZATION.
Pet Posse is a 501©3 non-profit corporation. Your donations are tax-deductible and we provide a receipt for you if you request one. "The most common type of tax-exempt nonprofit organization falls under category 501©(3), whereby a nonprofit organization is exempt from Federal income tax if its activities have the following purposes: charitable, ........or preventing cruelty to ... or animals." We are also able to charge fees as necessary for safety and care while at our shelter.
Donations can be made through: PayPal, Community Bank, First Federal or inside the Tiny Bubbles Pet Store, where Port Angeles Pet Posse resides. Donations help us continue to help the community to cover costs of searching and helping reunite animals and their owners.
We rely on donations to help us continue reuniting pets with their owners. Donations are used to help the next animal that is missing. We can help create flyers (the owner is responsible to pay for and pick up the flyers and deliver a copy to Pet Posse). We also put your pet's information out on other social media so that more people are aware your pet is missing or found.
