See if your city/county has animal control. In small towns animal control is sometimes contacted through the police department's non-emergency phone number. The Sheriff Department may handle animal issues out in the County. Also contact other shelters and your area veterinary offices to see if your pet has been taken there. Good ol' paper posters and flyers help, too.
If you need to find a new home for your pet, see https://adoptapet.com for free tools that may help you.

Copiah Animal Shelter is a small, limited intake volunteer-led animal shelter supporting Copiah County, Mississippi (MS) and surrounding communities. Please, FIRST text or call the Shelter cell phone to see if we have space available to take in animals. Our Shelter is small and fills quickly. CAS also helps re-home owned animals when possible. Calls are usually returned a couple times a day if you get voicemail.
Include pet photos if possible.
Note the veterinary clinic next door to the Shelter does NOT manage the Shelter's incoming animals.
