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 Animals Database.
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! Learn more about our Community Cat Program here.
Submit a Lost Pet Report.
If you have lost your pet, please let us know so we can help! The information you provide will be posted to our Lost Animals Database, which is searchable for members of the community who may have found your animal.
Check your neighborhood. Eighty percent of lost pets are found within a mile of home, so check your local area and speak with neighbors.
