For additional assistance,
the Sacramento County Bradshaw Animal Shelter has a Lost and Found Team that can assist owners/finders by walking them through registering pets on Pet Harbor, offering tips on finding pets, navigating various shelter websites, and jurisdictions and answering questions about stray pets in the shelter. Call (916) 875-LOST (5678) or email BradshawLostAndFound@saccounty.gov. All inquiries via email and voicemail will be followed up within 48 hours.
Other Tips to Find Your Lost Pet:
Visit local shelters and check websites every three days to see if your pet has arrived.
Report a lost pet by registering at Lost.PetcoLove.org, 24petconnect.com,
Pawboost.com, and Nextdoor.com to alert someone who has possibly found or seen your pet.
Post flyers within a mile radius of where your pet was lost at vets, stores, schools, and churches.
- Include date/place where lost, type/breed, and your phone number (Don't list name on the flyer).
Place a yard sign in front of your house, with a photo of your missing pet and your phone number. People who find a lost pet often will walk or drive around the area, trying to find the pet’s owner.
Place an ad in the lost and found sections of papers and online bulletin boards.
- Sacramento Bee (916-321-1234) or Craigslist.
