Would you like to help us help animals? Here are some ideas:
I Found a Lost Pet
If you have found a lost cat or dog, you can help get that pet home by posting a photo and description of the found or lost animal on LA City Lost and Found Pets,,, or as well as put up flyers in the neighborhood to help reunite the pet with their families. According to an ASPCA survey, about half of missing dogs and a third of missing cats were found in their own neighborhoods.

Or you can consider our Shelter-at-Home program, which helps reunite animal with their owners.

If you are unable to temporarily keep the lost pet, call 1-888-452-7381 and make an appointment to bring the pet to the nearest LA Animal Services Center.
I Want to Adopt a Pet

  • Call 888-452-7381 with the Animal ID number or A# (example: A1234567).
  • LA Animal Services will share all the information available on that animal.
  • If you’re interested in moving forward with the adoption, LA Animal Services will take your information and schedule a pick-up appointment.

I Need to Surrender my Pet
If you can no longer keep your pet and are considering surrendering your animal companion, LA Animal Services has partnered with Home To Homewhich gives pet owners the opportunity to find new, loving homes without having to take their furry family member to a shelter.

Please do not bring a pet to one of our Animal Services Centers if you have not made an appointment.
