Did You Find A Lost Pet?
If you found a stray animal that is not an emergency, the quickest way for you to turn in a found pet is to visit our shelter front counters. Emergency calls should be made for injured, aggressive, sick and suffering, or animals obstructing traffic.
An officer can be dispatched to pick up the animal from your home. Please consider that all calls are handled in a priority manner. Requests for pick up can be made during normal business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. by calling 951-358-7387
After-hour dispatchers are available for emergencies only.
