Lost a Pet?
Losing an animal can be one of the most stressful moments in a pet owner's life. San Diego Humane Society is here to help! The following resources can improve your chances of finding your pet.
Search our Found & Stray Animals
We have temporarily redirected this search back to our previous version - we are experiencing technical difficulties with the new search and will have it back online as soon as possible! We apologize for the interruption!
Looking for a community cat? When community cats – outdoor cats with no identifiable signs of ownership — are brought to our shelters, we spay/neuter, vaccinate and quickly return them to their outdoor homes. If you’ve noticed that a community cat is missing from your neighborhood, keep an eye out as they may be returned in a day or two. If they return with a tipped ear, it’s a signal they’ve been spayed/neutered and vaccinated! Learn more about our Community Cat Program here.
Submit a Lost Pet Report.
If you have lost your pet, please click below and complete the necessary information to add them to PawBoost's Lost & Found Pets database. The information you provide on PawBoost is searchable by members of the community who may have found your animal. It's also monitored by San Diego Humane Society, and will help us contact you if your lost pet is brought to one of our shelters.
Check your neighborhood. Eighty percent of lost pets are found within a mile of home, so check your local area and speak with neighbors.
