Have you recently lost your dog? It can be a scary thing for both owner and pet when this happens. They may be safe and sound at the West Valley Humane Society. On Tuesday, the West Valley Humane Society reported a total of 23 dogs brought into the shelters as strays.
An announcement was posted on their Facebook page. If you are missing your pup in Canyon County please make sure you check out the shelter's lost and found page to see if your pet has arrived as a stray. There is a verification process to make sure that lost pets are returned to their rightful owners.
