Thank you for visiting our Missing Dog portion of the VHDA web. This site is for Hunting Dogs that were lost in Virginia only, funds are limited so please respect our wishes. (open to any hunting dogs missing in Virginia, not house pets)

On this site you may post two pictures per dog. All Animal Shelters and Pounds in Virginia will be notified by email that your dog is missing and provided some basic information directing them to this site for full details and assistance. Your name will not be provided to anyone but the finder or a qualified Shelter. You can print a poster to place in store and other spots in your community (you will be able to put personal information on this poster).

Some fields are required, if you have any questions contact us at or for assistance.

There is no charge for this service, but we hope you will find it valuable and will make a donation to help keep this service available to Virginia’s hunters.

If such identification is found on the animal, the animal shall be held for an additional five days, unless sooner claimed by the rightful owner. If the rightful owner of the animal can be readily identified, the operator or custodian of the pound must make a reasonable effort to notify the owner of the animal's confinement within the next 48 hours following its confinement.
