Animal Control

What To Do If Your Pet is Lost


If your pet disappears, move quickly, before it has time to go far. Most lost dogs and cats are found within two miles of where they were lost. Notify the Lemont Police Department at (630) 257-2229 so officers are aware of the situation and can notify you if the animal is found.

Mobilize help - family, neighbors, and friends. Walk through the neighborhood calling your pets. Be cautious when calling around busy intersections - your pet may try to cross the street to get to you.

If your pet is friendly with strangers, check parks and schools. If your pet is shy, frightened, or injured, check places that offer seclusion.

Leave the gate to your yard open in case your dog returns home on its own.
