Everett Animal Shelter warns people of lost pet scam

The Everett Animal Shelter has put out a warning that a lost pet scam is going around.

The shelter says someone is calling owners of lost pets and asking for money. And that the shelter’s main number is coming up.

The shelter does charge for re-claiming lost pets but says they don’t do it over the phone, except for special circumstances.

The shelter also says all lost and stray animals in its care are posted on its website so owners can check to make sure.
