For Found and Rescued Animals
It is a misdemeanor to dump and abandon ANY animal whether in town, or in the country. This includes animal shelters. It doesn’t matter if it’s yours or not. Abandonment is illegal and punishable with one year in jail and/or a $100 to $500 fine.
Most people will check with Enid Animal Control and the Enid SPCA first when they have lost a pet. So if you have found a pet, please report it to AC and give us a call (580) 233-1325 and let us know so we can help.

The Enid Rover Alert is a page for animals who have been either lost or found in the Enid area. There are also other facebook pages that would be helpful; Enid’s Lost Pets, Enid’s Found Pets, Fureverfriends Rover Alert, and FOE-Friends of Enid Area (Animals).
Facebook is one of the fastest ways to get information spread to a large amount of people. Enid Rover Alert is a facebook page that lets you post lost and found pets, in hopes of getting the word out and reuniting lost pets with their owners. If you do not have a facebook account or are unable to post please call 233-1325 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org we will take the information and post for you.
If you have lost your pet there is more you can do!
Place fliers up in your neighborhood, local stores, convenience stores and grocery stores. ATWOODS, PETSMART and PetSense have public bulletin boards.
When making lost pet posters:
•make them GIANT so that people driving by cannot miss them.
•make them FLUORESCENT so that the color attracts the attention of everyone.
•put them at major intersections near where you lost your pet (and in areas of sightings).
•keep them BRIEF and to the point.
•let them convey a VISUAL IMAGE of what you have lost.
•put a copy in your car window.
Please check each day with the Enid SPCA and Animal Control if your pet is missing and post on the Enid Rover Alert Facebook Page

The Enid SPCA has made a commitment to always pull from our Enid Animal Control facility first, When people call needing animal placement we will add them to a list which we use to give information to people who may be looking for a particular type of animal which we do not have. We also may refer to this list when we have an opening. Sadly, we seldom have a need to search for animals to fill empty spots. Due to the high volume of calls for placement, we encourage you to keep in contact with us every 3-4 days so that should a space become available we could possibly assist you. It is important that you understand that because we are a NO-KILL adoption facility and not a sanctuary, every animal we accept must be adoptable. So it’s not that we don’t want to help, sometimes we are just not able to help. We are a non-profit organization that works solely off of private donations from the public. We receive no federal, state, or city funding, so we are not able to work with the general public for medical care.
Remember: when you choose to rescue or bring home an animal, you have made a choice to be responsible for that animal just as if it is your very own. That includes food, water, shelter, medical attention and tender loving care.
