I've lost my pet, what do I do?
Step 1: Check the found animals page.
The found animals page lists stray animals that have been brought to the center within the last 5 days. Please read the animal descriptions carefully, as pictures are not provided in this list. Please note: due to the quantity of animals received each day, user errors occur while entering animal descriptions into the database. Therefore, we highly recommend, that you also come to the center (150 Corporation Yard Rd, Roseville) to view animals received in person.
Step 2: Visit Placer SPCA (150 Corporation Yard Road, Roseville) to view the animals received in person.

Step 3: Visit other local shelters.
Placer SPCA is only able to accept stray animals from the City of Roseville. If you do not find your lost animal at our facility, you should continue your search at other local animal shelters. Please refer to the lost animals guide to identify locations of these facilities.
Submit a lost pet form and photo to the Placer SPCA.
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 drop off in person, or
mail, fax or email to us. Please include a photo. The Placer SPCA will keep this
information in our Lost and Found book at
the front counter.
Step 3: Please keep us informed.
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! This is very important as an up-to-date record ensures that we are able o better serve others who have also lost animals. 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.

your pet was lost. You may even want to

lobbies for clients.

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!

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
