Lost & Found

Local municipalities contract with our shelter to take in the strays picked up in their region. It is important to call or email us a lost animal. Animals brought into our shelter as strays are checked for I.D. and scanned for microchips in order to reunite them with their owners as soon as possible. Pets can be microchipped at our facility without appointment (more info about microchips here).

If you have LOST a pet

Losing a pet can be a stressful and confusing time so we’ve outlined some proven tips and tricks below. We want to help.

  • Don’t wait! Don’t assume he/she has been stolen! Most lost dogs are able to be recovered within a mile of home inside the first 24 hours
  • Spread the word! File a report with your local animal control agency as well as Petco Love Lost. Their database uses facial recognition technology to help reunite found pets with their owners.
  • You can share the Lost Pet profile to your local social media pages.
  • Petco Love Lost also gives you the ability to make flyers to post!
  • Talk to your neighbors, they may have seen your lost pet.

While our staff makes every attempt to match up missing animals with those animals in our facility, you will know your pet better than we will. We advise you to VISIT the shelter to walk the building to make sure that your animal is NOT here. If possible, please bring a photo of the animal with you so that the office staff may attach the photo to your lost report. Visit the shelter as often as possible, but AT LEAST every 6 days.

If you have FOUND a pet

Please contact your local Animal Control Office, Police Department and other local shelters as well as posting to Petco Love Lost.
