LOST YOUR PET? FOUND SOMEONE ELSE'S?
We're here to help.
What to Do
If you have found a lost or stray animal, please file a report with the Delaware Office of Animal Welfare.
If you have lost your pet, please file a report with the Delaware Office of Animal Welfare. Also, look at the list below of recently found pets or you can also do a walk-through of our shelter to determine if your pet has been brought to us.
All Lost/Found Reports will also be posted to our Lost/Found Facebook Page, an online community we have set up to help reunite pets and owners.
- Contact friends and neighbors in person or using social media – flyers go a long way!
- In the event that you’ve lost a cat, put out something that smells familiar to your cat, such as a blanket or a bit of dirty litter. Many indoor cats will remain very close to the home and a familiar smell can lure them back into the home, safe and sound!
- Call local veterinary hospitals.
- Also, we strongly urge all pet owners to permanently identify their pet with a microchip! This can be done for only $20 at the Brandywine Valley SPCA. While collars can fall off and tags can go missing, a microchip is permanent and ensures that your contact information remains with your pet at all times!
