Lost & Found Pets

I lost my pet. What should I do? 

Do these things right away:

  • Search the Petco Love Lost national lost and found database and Register your pet at www.petcolovelost.org. Pets that are brought into one of our shelters by a Good Samaritan are automatically uploaded as FOUND pets into Petco Love Lost.

  • Post your pet on social platforms, including your local lost and found pets Facebook group, NextDoor, Craigslist, and Pawboost. These are just a few of the Facebook lost and found pets groups in our area. Be safe. Do no include your personal information.

  • Search the area where your pet was lost. Create LOST PET signs and hang them as you walk around the neighborhood. 

What else can I do? 

Ask friends, family, and neighbors to help you search the radium within a mile of your home. 80% of lost pets are found within a mile of where they live so your pet probably has not gone far!
