lost and found pets

Did you lose your dog or cat, or found a stray?  

It is very unlikely that your lost pet would be at Berkeley Humane as we are a private shelter. In Berkeley, Berkeley Animal Care Services takes all strays and files lost/found animal reports.

Please visit our Community Resources page for tips and guides on what to do if you lost or found a pet
