Contact Palatine Police as soon as you discover your pet missing. A Lost/Found Animal Log is maintained on all animals that are called in as well as those found by our department. As much descriptive info as possible should be provided, such as coloring, scars, limps etc. Unidentified pets will be impounded at Golf Rose Kennel in Schaumburg (847-885-2122). An animal may also be impounded if no one is home to take possession of the animal. Citations, as well as kennel fees like boarding and parasite control, may be incurred by the owner. If you find a pet, contact the police department in the town it was found. Reuniting the pet and owner may prove more difficult if the animal is taken out of the area it was roaming in.
