I've Lost my Dog/Cat! Help!

First, let me say I am so sorry you need to read this page at all!

The most important thing to remember is not to give up! Cats are known for hiding after they get lost. Most times, cats will be within 3 blocks of your home. Dogs, however, roam. One of the best resources we've found is The Missing Animal Response Network. Check out all of their great advice and then utilize it!

Many of the resources below are specific to the Antelope Valley, so let's get started looking for your missing fur-baby!

Post your lost 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:
