There is no longer a shelter in Waltham for stray animals. Any dogs that are picked up by Animal Control are brought to Natick Animal Clinic if they are not identified or picked up by their owner by the end of the shift. If your dog is missing, call Animal Control at 781-314-3596 or Police Operations at 781-314-3600 (after 3:30pm weekdays or on weekends), to see if your dog was brought to the station.
For lost or found cats, please contact The Cat Connection-781-899-4610 or check with the local animal hospitals. You should also contact animal control and we will be happy to take all your information and post it on our Facebook page to get the word out! Email or post to the Animal Control timeline a photo of your cat with a description, your name and contact information, the area the cat was last seen and any other identifying information. firstname.lastname@example.org
