Losing a family pet is devastating for everyone involved, the family that learns the pet is missing and even for the person who finds a pet running loose! The stress of not knowing where to start, what to do or who to contact. We are here to help.
If you have recently lost a pet, it’s important to begin your search the moment you realize your pet is missing. Searching around your home and neighborhood; your pet could be in a neighbor’s yard or garage, someone may have spotted them and posted their location here, or they may be in another person's home where they are waiting on Animal Control or getting ready to take them directly to the Humane Society.
Pets found with no identification and without ID are only required to be held in California shelters for 3 Days. With identification (microchip, tags or an identification tattoo), animals are held for 10 Days. So please make sure that your pet's ID tags and/or microchip information is up to date and current, if your tags are worn and unreadable please replace them.
We’ve probably all been late for something because we saw a dog running down the street and tried everything we could think of to help and rescue them. Not at any time stopping to think; what am I going to do if I catch this pup? You may have other pets or live in an area that does not allow pets and that all makes a difficult situation even more complicated when all you were trying to do was the right thing. Because as we all know, sometimes we find lost animals and sometimes lost animals find us.
We see this all the time and must make this clear, a found animal is not owned by the person who finds it, “finders keepers” only worked when we were children. We realize that it’s very easy to make a bond with the animal, however, in most cases these pets are owned, spoiled and loved by a family who desperately want them back.
As the finder, you can call Animal Control, take them directly to a local shelter or the Humane Society, or hold on to them, posting them here on out page. if you post the animal here and take on this responsibility to care for the animal you must fill out a Found Animal report and need to make every possible attempt to locate and reunite them with the legal owners, not doing so is theft. California has a 30 holding period for lost animals if you choose this route, but you can always contact the Humane Society if it becomes problematic.
