Every year, thousands of pets get lost.
We have several resources available to help you find your missing pet or reunite a lost pet with her family on your own.
- Lost a Pet
- San Diego Humane Society only holds pets found in the cities of Carlsbad, Del Mar, Encinitas, Escondido, Imperial Beach, Oceanside, Poway, San Diego, San Marcos, Santee, Solana Beach and Vista. After a holding period, the animal may be made available for adoption.
- Found Lost or Stray Animals
- First, immediately check for identification and ask the people around if they know who the owner may be. If the dog doesn’t have an ID tag, the following steps will help them find their way home.
- Rehome a Pet
- Facing the decision to give up your pet can be devastating and we know it's not easy. We understand that there are sometimes circumstances that may prevent you from being able to keep your pet, and San Diego Humane Society is here to help.
