If you find a lost pet, there are two options for what you can do:
Bring the pet directly to one of our shelters in Martinez or Pinole since many pet owners contact us first to inquire about their lost animal. For animals found in Antioch, please go to Antioch Animal Services.
You can keep the lost pet in your home in case you may want to keep it if no owner is found. For this option, you do need to file a found pet report with us by calling our volunteer number at 925-608-8430. After 30 days, you can become the legal owner.
As an additional measure in trying to find the pet's owner, you can also post a no-cost found pet notice on Pet Harbor. See the instructions below.
