Have you lost your beloved pet? Have you spent hours canvassing your neighborhood? Well now you have the option of letting your fingers do the walking. The Central California SPCA has recently launched a lost and found page on our website. Pet owners now have the option of viewing photos of pets recently brought into our stray department in the comfort of their own home. It is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. The photos on the website are updated frequently and in real time.
To access our lost and found page please visit our website www.CCSPCA.com and click on “Programs and Services” then “Lost Your Pet?” to view photos.
The CCSPCA Stray Animal Building holds animals for 4 days, excluding the first day the animal was impounded. Once the stray holding period ends, animals are subject to health and temperament assessments before being transferred to the CCSPCA Adoption Center.
You must come to the CCSPCA Stray Animal Building or search through the photos on our website to look for your animal. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, however, due to the volume of animals we care for and because we do not personally know your pet, we cannot look for you.
Did you find your pet? That’s great. Here is what you need to bring with you to reclaim your animal:
- Pet identification to establish ownership such as: Any veterinary records, such as, rabies certificate, spay/neuter certificate, vaccine records, microchip certificate and veterinary hospital invoices, photo(s) of the animal preferably with you or a family member in the picture, adoption papers from the shelter or breeder of origin, AKC/UKC registration certificates, etc.
- Personal Identification such as California Identification Card, California Driver’s License, Passport or Military ID.
- Method of payment for reclaim fees. We accept the following form of payments: Cash, Visa, Master Card, American Express, Discover Card and any banking cards that bare these symbols. NO CHECKS WILL BE ACCEPTED.
The CCSPCA’s “Lost Your Pet?” website page was launched on August 29, 2013. We hope you find your animal because we are sure it’s missing you too!
