We are so happy that you took initiative to a help a lost pet by taking it into your home. Congratulations, you are now a partner in our life saving efforts!

Dogs

FOUND A LOST DOG? REGISTER IT ON PETCOLOVELOST

Petco Love Lost is a searchable national database that uses patented facial recognition technology to make finding lost pets quicker and easier. Uploaded photos of a missing dog or cat are immediately scanned to determine whether the lost pet is at a participating shelter or with a neighbor in the community.

REGISTER A LOST PET

If you have an injured or aggressive lost pet, please contact the Riverside County Department of Animal Services at 951-358-PETS (7387) for assistance immediately. Please note: After-hour dispatchers are available for emergencies only. If you find a lost pet, it is not an emergency. Emergency calls should be made for injured, aggressive, sick, and suffering, or animals obstructing traffic.

Cats

FOUND A LOST CAT?

Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center supports free roaming cats through Trap-neuter-return services and does accept healthy adult community cats.

 Most "stray" cats are actually a part of the community and do not have owners, the best thing that can be done for them is Trap-Neuter-Return. This ensures that the cat is spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and returned back to their outdoor "home" where they are looked after and cared for. Despite our efforts, an animal shelter is an extremely stressful place for cats, so returning to a place they know is far better for healthy outdoor cats.

If you find kittens, please leave them alone unless they are sick, injured or in immediate danger. Find out why.

We encourage you to download the resource guide below with tips on how to find the owner.  Data shows that lost pets have a higher chance of being found by their owner if they stay in their communities.
