If the loud noises and commotion that went along with the New Year's celebrations scared your pet and caused it to run away, the Humboldt County Sheriff Animal Shelter has several ways to check if it ended up there.

The animal shelter, located at 980 Lycoming Ave. in McKinleyville, will be open today from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and can be reached at 707-840-9132. Owners can also view found pets at www.petharbor.com.
