If you live in the Antelope Valley, you know how easy it is to find a stray dog or cat. Now that you've found one, what do you do? Luckily, you found our cheat sheet!
If you have found a pet, one of your first stops should be a veterinarian's office. Ask them to scan the pet for a microchip. Be sure to write down the number! They may be able to get the pet home if the microchip has been registered.
Post your found pooch or kitty on these websites:
Palmdale Animal Shelter - https://animalcare.lacounty.gov/palmdale/
Lancaster Animal Shelter - https://animalcare.lacounty.gov/#section-1510707344568-5-9
Craigslist.org - Check under "Community" then "Lost & Found."
We recommend posting them on the following Facebook Pages and Groups as well:

Our volunteers have placed hundreds of dogs and cats in new, loving homes and we would be happy to assist you in re-homing your pet or the pet you rescued
