The Potter League keeps a computerized listing of all animal reported missing for 30 days from the date reported to us. We regularly check this list against incoming animals. It is, however, highly recommended that those who are missing their pets visit the shelter in person. Descriptions of animals can vary greatly and animals are sometimes found a great distance from where they were originally reported missing.
