Lost & Found Pets

    To report a lost or found pet please submit a LOST and FOUND Pet Form

    Lost & Found Phone Hotline

    When reporting a lost or found pet to the Lost and Found Hotline, please take a moment to gather your thoughts and be ready with the following information: 
  • Your name
  • Your phone number
  • A description of the lost or found animal, including breed type, size, color, special markings, and whether they are wearing a collar or may be microchipped
  • The date and time the animal was noticed missing (or when it was found)
  • Your address and major cross streets the animal is missing from or where it was found


Lost & Found Publications

Posting signs of your lost pet or a found pet in your neighborhood is always helpful. Several groups recommend placing a sign in your own yard that says "LOST PET" and it's description. Neighbors often walk or drive an animal around the neighborhood looking for the owner. You may post online for free in newspapers, on Facebook, www.Nextdoor.com, www.MyNeighborhood.com and on CraigsList.
With technology booming, there are many new phone apps like www.FindingRover.org or www.Pawboost.com , www.FoundAnimals.org and www.PetHarbor.com to help find missing pets. 

Check with neighboring agencies such as Sacramento County Animal Care & Regulation, Roseville Animal Control or the Placer SPCA. (See list on right).

Citrus Heights Animal Services (CHAS) - Found Animals

Citrus Heights does not have an animal shelter in the city. Whenever possible, Citrus Heights Animal Services tries to locate licenses, ID tags, and microchips to hopefully return found animals home rather than taking pets to the Sacramento SPCA shelter at 6201 Florin-Perkins Road, Sacramento CA 95828.
