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 -

Lancaster Animal Shelter - - Check under "Community" then "Lost & Found."

We recommend posting them on the following Facebook Pages and Groups as well:
