TIPS TO HELP LOCATE A PET'S GUARDIAN

NOTIFY AND CHECK LOCAL SHELTERS

Visit the Palm Springs Animal Shelter if the pet was found in or near Palm Springs and/or the Coachella Valley Animal Campus (CVAC) if found in another Coachella Valley city.

Palm Springs Animal Shelter:

4575 E. Mesquite Ave.
Palm Springs, CA 92264
(760) 416-5718

Coachella Valley Animal Campus:

72050 Pet Land Place
Thousand Palms, CA 92276
(760) 343-3644
While visiting the appropriate shelter, file a Lost & Found Report. Be sure to bring the pet with you to scan for a microchip and get a photo for the shelter’s Found Pet report. Also bring any collar/leash/tags you found with the pet, the specific location (address if possible) where you found the pet, and your valid driver’s license or government issued ID.

  • If the pet was found in or near Palm Springs, you may choose to relinquish the pet to the Palm Springs Animal Shelter. The Palm Springs Animal Shelter is an open admissions public shelter serving the city of Palm Springs. We take in all displaced animals throughout the city.
  • If you would like to keep the pet while you look for the guardian, you still need to visit the shelter during operating hours with the pet so we can scan for a microchip, take a photo of the pet, and complete a Found Pet report.

Continue to check out the Palm Springs Lost Pets list (above) to see if your found pet has a Lost Pet Report on file at the shelter. Keep checking the list daily.

If you see your found pet on this list:

  • Note the Animal Number and name.
  • Call the shelter and ask to speak with our intake/pet retention coordinator to notify of a potential match.
  • If the intake/pet retention coordinator confirms the potential match we will then arrange or help you arrange a reunion with the guardian.

OTHER SUGGESTIONS

Submit a found report on animal related or social websites like Craig’s List and Facebook (there are several local lost and found pet pages).

Post signs: Make the signs bold, with key words in large type. A photo of the animal is a big help. Distribute flyers door-to-door in the neighborhood where the pet was found and post them at major intersections and along main streets. Scan the neighborhood for signs advertising a lost pet, in case the one you found is the same one.
