Lost & Found
As part of our mission, the Placer SPCA
helps to reunite lost pets with their
owners. You can view a list of stray animals received at our center within the last five days on the Found Animals page, with information about the location where they were found.
To help expedite the process of
reuniting you and your pet, the Placer SPCA
encourages you to follow these steps:
Please come to the center during our normal
business hours to see if your companion
animal friend is here. If possible, it is
always best to bring a current picture of
your pet with you. And please make sure to
check back every few days as we
unfortunately receive lost animals daily.
Hopefully, this is all it will take for you
to reunite with your lost companion animal.
The Placer SPCA helps to reunite lost pets
with their owners by keeping a record of
lost pet reports which are available to the
public. You can download a
Cat form which you can fill out and
mail, fax or email to us. If you would
like to include a picture as well, please do
so. The Placer SPCA will keep this
information in our Lost and Found book at
the front counter.
Keep in touch with us, and let us know when
you have been reunited with your companion
animal so we can keep our records up to
date! Once you have been reunited with
your lost companion animal friend, bring him or her to the Placer SPCA during business hours to have a microchip implanted, or ask your veterinarian about microchips.
Other helpful tips in enhancing the search
for your lost pet:
Post pictures around the area in which
your pet was lost. You may even want to
check with local veterinarians, as some
display lost and found books in their
lobbies for clients.
Contact the animal control agency in the
city/county your animal was lost.
Check other area shelters (especially if
the pet was lost near a city/county
Place an ad in a local newspaper and
make sure to check the local newspaper
for listings of found pets. Check the online edition of your paper as well. Gold Country Media Classifieds
Sacramento Bee Found classifieds.
Check online lost and found listings
through Craigslist and PetFinder's classified ads. Post your own Lost notice on these websites, including a photo of your pet if possible and the general location where he was lost. Use caution when providing any personal contact information, including your home address, to anyone who may contact you.
We wish you the best of luck in this
difficult time, and if there is anything
else we can do, please let us know!
If you have found a pet, please:
Take the pet to a local veterinarian or
animal shelter so they can be scanned
for a microchip. Hopefully, this is all
it will take for the pet to be reunited
with its owner!
If no microchip or id tag provides owner
information, please contact your local
animal shelter(s) and provide them
information on the pet you found. It is
helpful to provide as much information
on identifiable traits such as breed,
sex, color of collar, special markings,
approximate weight, etc. You may want to come to the Placer SPCA to check our Lost and Found book, to see if the pet's owner has submitted a Lost form. Please complete a Found Cat or Found Dog Information Sheet and submit it to us with a photo if possible.
Post found listings in local newspapers
or online databases, such as Craigslist or PetFinder.
Post flyers around the area in which the
pet was found with the date you found
Before reuniting the pet with its

“owner” to provide a description of the
animal and a name to see if the pet
