Reclaiming a Pet
If you have lost an animal, you MUST come down to the shelter in person as soon as possible (Hours of Operation).
Check our "Online Kennels" for animals that have been brought in at:
Why look at our pets in person? No one knows your animal as well as you, and you may describe your animal differently than kennel staff members. If your animal is not here on your first attempt, don't give up! Someone may have your animal at their home while trying to find you, only to bring it here days, weeks, even months later.
Other ways to find your animal: Post signs in your neighborhood, at local veterinary clinics and pet supply outlets, and place an ad in your local newspaper. Go door to door in your neighborhood, talk to service personnel (mail, trash, meter readers etc.). Visit the Shelter at least every other day! Check at neighboring shelters like the Humane Society of Ventura County, the Agoura Shelter, and Santa Barbara Co. Animal Services.
Sadly, we may have found your animal dead on the roadway or in your neighborhood. Please check the dead list for animals that have been picked up or turned in.
