The number of lost and/or unwanted pets increases
daily, creating a high number of impounded animals.
The purpose of Animal Control is to regulate,
license and provide public safety and humane control of domestic animals
throughout our community.
Bentonville's Animal Control Officers take pride in
enforcing, promoting, and protecting public safety. They also enforce and promote responsible pet
ownership, safe human-animal interactions, and other related duties that apply.
If your pet wears a current
license or I.D. tag, we will make every effort possible to notify you and
reunite you with your lost pet. If your pet was not wearing a tag it's very
possible that he/she could have been impounded.
The Bentonville Police Department currently compiles
a daily list of unclaimed dogs that are picked up in the Bentonville area. This list
is provided and updated daily in an effort to help pet owners locate/claim their lost pet, or
even to inform interested citizens of a dog found in their neighborhood who might need a good
to view a list of dogs found. This list is updated biweekly
These dogs are held at the Rogers Animal Shelter and
become the property of the City of Rogers six days after being picked up.
Once a dog has been missing over six days it will not be on the list and will therefore
be necessary for you to contact the Rogers Animal Shelter to verify if they
still have possession.
