Found a Cat

Our Lost & Found services are by appointment only. Please call us at 619-299-7012 to schedule an appointment.

Have you found a healthy adult cat or kittens who lives outside?

Here are a few things to know:

  • We will not be accepting cats who live outside unless they are sick or injured. This decision has been made due to our temporary suspension of elective surgeries, including spay/neuter procedures, at the guidance of public health and shelter medicine specialists. You can learn more here.
  • If you’ve found kittens who are being cared for by their mother and seem healthy, please leave them with their mother. If the kittens are sick, injured or in danger, please call us at 619-299-7012 to make an appointment to bring them to one of our locations. For more information about whether kittens should be brought to the shelter, please visit this web page for instructions.
