When a Bowie Animal Control Officer picks up a pet and is unable to locate the owner, a description of the pet, a photograph and additional information will be posted on the Animal Control Facebook page. When a City Animal Control Officer is not on duty, Prince George’s County Animal Control is contacted. Pets picked up by the county can be viewed at the Pet Harbor website.
Pet Pick-Up Alerts
Pet owners can also register to receive Pet Pickup Alerts. Subscribers will receive an alert with a description of a pet that has been picked up. The message will refer recipients to the Bowie Animal Control Facebook page where more details and a photo of the pet will be posted.
Pet Pickup Alerts are provided through Alert Bowie 2.0. If you already have an Alert Bowie account, you can log in to your account and add Pet Pickups to your subscriptions.

Unfortunately the Animal Control Officer also has the sad task of disposing of pets that are deceased when found. The Animal Control office maintains a database to assist residents in identifying pets who may have met an untimely death.
