Lost and Found Dogs

My dog got out and I can’t find her. How do I report her missing?
You may contact the non-emergency number for the Yamhill Communications Agency (YCOM) at 503/434-6500 or the Newberg-Dundee dispatch center for Newberg/East Yamhill County at 503/538-8321. They will forward the report to the appropriate agency for response.

My dog got out and I can’t find her. How do I know if she’s been picked up?
You can check our Facebook page, call the County Dog Control Office (503-434-7538 x 0), any of the numerous volunteer groups social media pages, or your local law enforcement agency.

My dog got out and I’ve been notified by Law Enforcement that she’s been picked up and is at the shelter. How do I get her back?
If the Yamhill County Sheriff’s Office (YCSO) has picked up your dog, you will need to come to the Sheriff’s Office (535 NE 5th Street, Room 143, McMinnville) to start the redemption process. Please do not contact Homeward Bound directly if YCSO has custody of your dog. They will be unable to assist you. You may call the Dog Control Office at 503-434-7538 x 0 to confirm costs and scheduling for redemption. Dogs will be required to be licensed before redemption.

If a Law Enforcement agency other than the Yamhill County Sheriff’s Office has notified you that your dog has been picked up and is being held, you will need to work with that Law Enforcement agency to redeem your dog.

I found a dog out roaming around. Whom do I report it to?

  • contacting the appropriate non-emergency number listed above to report the location and description of the dog if you are not able to contain the dog or if the dog has no identification available;
  • contacting the dog owner if you are able to contain the dog and there is identification/contact information available on the dog’s collar; or
  • contacting the appropriate non-emergency number listed above to provide the license information if you are able to contain the dog but there is only license information, not owner contact information.
