All animals picked up by Animal Control within the Derby city limits are transported to the Wichita Animal Shelter at 3303 N. Hillside in Wichita if the owner cannot be found the day the animal is picked up in Derby.
If your animal is missing, immediately contact the shelter at (316) 838-9623 to provide a description of your animal. Even if your animal is not at the shelter, providing shelter staff with a description will help them more quickly identify your pet if he/she does turn up.

Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. – 6:30 p.m.
Saturday, Sunday and most holidays, 1 – 5 p.m.
