Does it have a rabies tag?

Call Public Health – Dayton & Montgomery County at (937) 225-4460 and they will be able to find the owner’s information for you.

Does it have a microchip?

Checking for a microchip requires a special scanning tool. Many local police departments have one of these tools, or the Animal Resource Center can scan for a microchip.

To increase the chances that the dog is reunited with its owner, please also register the dog as found.

If the dog’s owner cannot be located and you are unable to provide a temporary home, please call or visit the Animal Resource Center for further assistance.
