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.

Please note: due to the quantity of animals received each day, user errors occur while entering animal descriptions into the found animals page. Therefore, we highly recommend, that you also come to the center (150 Corporation Yard Rd, Roseville) to view 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.

Step 4: 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 Dog or 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.

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.

  • 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:

  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. Post found listings in local newspapers or online databases, such as Craigslist or PetFinder

  4. Post flyers around the area in which the pet was found with the date you found the animal.

  5. Before reuniting the pet with its “owner,” don’t be afraid to ask the “owner” to provide a description of the animal and a name to see if the pet responds.
