Reporting Lost or Found Animals

Pets that are reported to the Glen Carbon Animal Control are entered into the in house computer system as well as put on a list for officers to reference lost or found animals. The information needed from the person involved:
  • Lost or found, describe incident
  • Description of animal, temperament, name, collar, tags, or micro chipped
  • Call back phone number, cell number, and address

Tools for Lost or Found Animals-PET FAX

Our next step is to fax to area agencies a PET FAX which has all the information about the incident, the animal, and contact numbers. There is such a thin line between our municipalities that a lost or found animal could easily be over looked if picked up by another agency. A full description of the pet and the incident is sent to surrounding police departments, veterinarian offices, Madison County Rabies Control, and the Edwardsville Intelligencer for a free ad in the Lost / Found section of the local newspaper.

High tech tools-SCANNERS

We scan all domestic animals that we come in contact with for a microchip. Micro chipping is the easiest way to find an owner and our newest scanner is universal and reads even the European microchips that are a different frequency and are not detected by the other scanners. Remember to register your pet once it is micro chipped and update your registry if you relocate.

Partnering with Madison County Rabies Control

All Bite Cases should be reported to the Glen Carbon Police 618-288-7226 or Madison County Rabies Control 618-692-1700. We work closely to verify and complete Bite Reports, to insure data and reporting of bite incidents is correctly relayed to the State of Illinois. There are guidelines for bite cases that are in place for your health and safety. All animals are required to have an annual or three year Rabies Vaccination, the fees for an unvaccinated animal that bites are significant and another tool to assure residents keep their animals disease free. Seldom do we respond to a vicious animal bite in Glen Carbon, most our bite incidents are accidental or miscommunication between humans and pets.

We also work closely with Madison County Rabies Control sharing information making every effort to locate Glen Carbons Pets as soon as possible that are found by their Animal Control Officers.
