LOST & FOUND DOGS

If you have lost your dog, call the SPCA or your local shelter to file a report. Certain cities have an animal shelter and also animal control. If your city has both, typically stray or found animals are required to go to Animal Control. If you find a dog, you are required by law to contact your local animal shelter or animal control and make a report.  It is illegal to keep any animal you have found and its important the proper protocols be followed.
