Description

By taking possession of a lost and found animal, you assume the obligation to house the animal in an animal welfare-friendly manner and to comply with the legal provisions of the lost and found law. For example, by leashing a lost animal, you take possession of it. You must immediately report the find to the loser or the owner. If the latter is unknown, you make the report to the authority responsible for the place where the animal was found. You give details of the circumstances that may be of importance for the determination of the loser or the owner. The official obligation to keep lost property follows from the right of the finder to hand in the found property to the competent authority.

You as the finder can keep the animal with the consent of the competent authority. For this purpose, you must house the animal in a manner appropriate to its species, care for it, feed it and provide veterinary care. If the owner comes forward within six months of the lost property report, you as the finder must surrender the animal. You can demand compensation from the owner for the necessary expenses as well as a finder's fee. After six months, you as the finder acquire ownership of the animal, unless you have previously waived this right.

You must report the find immediately.

The owner has 6 months to come forward. Then you must give him the animal. If the owner does not report within 6 months, you may keep the animal.

So-called free-roaming cats

If you find a free-roaming cat, you may not keep it. A free-roaming animal has the ability to forage where it wants and can go where it wants. You do not have to report this find.
