Lost Animals:

It is very important to visit all of the shelters in your surrounding area in person.

  • Visit each shelter to file a lost report. Lost reports are only accepted in person, a faxed or phoned in lost report is not acceptable. To fill out a report before you come to the LA/SPCA click here to download. Try to fill out as much information as possible including microchip numbers and rabies tag numbers.
  • Bring a photo of your animal. A color photo with a good view of the pet's face and any identifying physical markings is best. Original photos will be scanned and returned; a printed color photo from a digital camera or cell phone is acceptable.
  • Visit area shelters as soon as you know your pet is gone. The stray hold period for this area is five days. After five days the pet will become the property of the shelter.
  • Click here to view the stray dogs we have currently at the Animal Rescue and Care Center. This does not negate the need for you to file a lost report with us.
  • See Found Animals posted by LA/SPCA users here. These animals are NOT at the LA/SPCA Animal Rescue and Care Center. 
  • Visit ALL area shelters. A list is provided below. There are many contributing factors to the arrival of a dog or cat at a shelter.
