The Hudson Police Department has a chip reader for found animals. The caller may bring the dog or cat into the station, or an officer can respond to their location. If the animal has a chip, we will try to contact the owner, but we cannot house the animal.
Hudson Dispatch keeps a running list of LOST, SPOTTED, AND FOUND animals in an excel sheet. We try to get as much information as possible so that the animal may be reunited with their owner. We will ask specific information about the lost or found pet, your contact information, and if it is ok to provide your information to the owner if they call.
