Lost & Found

Despite how careful you are, sometimes a friend wanders off. We are Tehama County's only stray animal holding facility, and we are always ready to assist owners in finding lost pets, as well as help those who have found a stray animal running loose.

 

          IMPORTANT

Think your pet may be at the shelter? Call (530) 527-3439 immediately. Strays are typically held 4-7 days before being placed up for adoption. 

Found an animal? Please take it to a vet clinic to be scanned for a microchip, and to determine its age, sex, and breed. This information is crucial in matching a pet to an owner.

Tips on Finding Your Lost Animal

 
Please remember that identification, like collars with tags and microchips, are your pet’s fastest way home! Cats can safely wear collars with tags too. Collars and tags are an easy way for people to know that your pet has a loving home.
