What to do when a pet is lost

Great info from Alison England:

I just wanted to pass along a couple of sites that were recently useful in bringing home a neighbor's lost pet. These two sites have photos of animals that have been turned in to shelters.


This site has links to our most local bay area shelters. Several have listings of photos of pets either at the shelter or being held by a resident until the pet can be found by its family. It's a huge time-saver rather than trying to physically visit all the shelters.

This is also a nice site to use for looking for a pet to adopt, as photos of adoptable pets are listed under a different category. (Careful, checking out the pictures of these loves can be addicting and could lead to bigger things.)


This is a very large set of links to shelters all over. It's a little harder to whittle down to more local shelters, but because it covers shelters virtually everywhere, it could be useful if you suspect a pet may have either roamed a great distance or perhaps may have been lost during a move or accidentally hitched a ride a great distance.

Please record both of these sites where you can find them in the future. You never know when you or someone you know might need them. A North Willow Glen family was recently reunited with their cat that had somehow traveled from Willow Glen to Saratoga.
