Lost a Pet

Fort Smith Animal Haven (FSAH) takes in dozens of pets daily and encourages anyone missing a pet to give us a call at (479)-551-2221 or visit our shelter in person as viewing pets in person is the most reliable way to locate your pet. Come to FSAH at 4800 S 46TH ST, FORT SMITH, AR 7290; hours of operation are 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday and 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. Saturday. Closed on Wednesday and Sunday.


Pets brought in as lost or stray have a holding period to help their owners find them. Holding periods for lost pets vary by age, species, and whether the pet has identification.

  • Mothers with a nursing litter do not have a hold period

  • Stray puppies and kittens up to 4 months of age do not have a hold period

  • Stray puppies and kittens 4-6 months of age have a 1-day hold period

  • Stray animals over 6 months of age without a microchip or tag have a 3-day holding period

  • Stray animals with a microchip or tag have a 5-day holding period



if you have any questions or would like to connect with a staff member.

We also encourage lost pet owners to reach out to us on our Facebook page and we can help spread the word to get your lost animal found!
