Found Pet Tips
Keep The Animal Contained
If you keep a found animal at your home while waiting for it to be claimed, keep it contained in a safe place and do not let it roam. If you cannot keep the animal contained, please take it to the shelter immediately or to someone trusted who can safely contain the animal until you can get it to the shelter.
Keep A Secret
Leave one identifying trait out of your description and require anyone who calls to identify that trait. This is for the animal’s safety, to assure it is returned to its true family. Or, you may ask for other forms of proof, but please do not turn an animal over based solely on a claim.
Check For Microchip
If you find a pet, please take it to a vet’s office or Calaveras County Animal Shelter and have it scanned for a microchip–there is no charge for this.
