City of Rowlett Lost & Found Pets


While we do not have the resources to take your pet in, we can help market your pet on our Facebook page and in the various Pet Portals like PetFinder and Adopt-a-Pet. This is called a Courtesy Post. You would continue to have your pet at home, but the public would be able to review the photos and information while looking for their pawfect pet!
