Found pets and strays

A stray cat who is healthy and friendly likely belongs to someone in your neighborhood. Cats have a far better chance of reuniting with their owner when they are not removed from the area in which they’re found. Less than 5% of stray cats who are brought into shelters are reclaimed by their owner. For this reason, we encourage you to leave healthy and friendly cats where you discovered them.

If you find a stray, you can:

Help reconnect a lost pet with its owner
  • Call your local animal control facility to see if a report filed matches the description of the animal in your care.

  • Check lost pets pages on social media, bulletin boards at local veterinarians offices, stores, post offices, etc.  If you see nothing, make flyers or posts on social media to get the word out.
