Turning in a Stray Animal
During the summer months, our Care Centers are often packed with surrendered cats and kittens. Bringing in a stray cat may not be in his/her best interest if the cat appears healthy and thriving in the community. Please see our flyer for help deciding what to do with a stray cat or kitten.
If you have found a stray dog with no collar, please contact 311 or bring the dog to any one of our centers.
When possible, we can also make appointments for stray pets, provided you are able to hold the animal potentially for several days. This can help us better prepare for the animal and make his or her stay as ideal as possible.
If an animal comes to us as a stray, we will hold the animal for 72 hours during which time we will search through various databases for any reports of lost pets that may fit the description of that animal. If no one claims him or her after the holding period, he/she will receive a Placement Evaluation to determine next steps.
