  • Visit the Yolo County Animal Services Shelter to check the stray section to look for your pet. The Yolo County SPCA does check the stray animals at the shelter on a regular basis to try to reunite stray animals with their owners. However, no one knows your pet better than you and we suggest you check the shelter personally. Remember, strays are only legally required to be held for 72 hours, so check regularly. You can view photos and descriptions of the stray animals at the shelter by visiting www.petharbor.com. Please be aware that you will not know what city or region of Yolo County the animal is from and you can not always count on the descriptions of the animals being accurate! If you think an animal may be your lost pet you can; (a) call the shelter to check where the animal is from (reference the animal by its’ ID number, (b) check the animal in person at the shelter immediately, or (c) contact our lost & found office at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and provide us with the ID number for the animal in question. The Yolo County Animal Services Shelter and the Yolo County SPCA lost & found office is closed on Sundays and Mondays.

  • Search for the pet’s owner. To search for the owner of a FOUND animal, you can utilize the tips we provide to people who have lost their pets. *Please note: we recommend that you do not give away all of the information about the animal. Leave some information out so the owner has to identify that it is their animal.

  • Have the animal scanned for a microchip. Please bring the animal in to the Yolo County Animal Services Shelter to have it scanned for a microchip.  Many pet owners are utilizing microchips to identify their pets so the only way to tell if the animal is microchipped is to have it scanned! If you can not bring the animal to the shelter to be scanned, please ask a local veterinary clinic if they have a “universal” or “international” scanner that detects all microchips. If they do, you can bring the animal to the vet clinic to have it scanned. If you are not sure of the breed, sex or age of the animal, please ask the staff at the shelter or vet clinic as this information is very important for the found report.
