Lost Pets

Lost and found pets

Lost pets that are found by a Seattle Animal Control Officer within the Seattle city limits are brought to the Seattle Animal Shelter. If you live outside the city or near the city's borders, contact other shelters in your area. If you're not sure, check the address on King County Parcel Viewer; if the jurisdiction says "Seattle," it is within city limits.

My pet is at the Seattle Animal Shelter

If you believe your pet is at the shelter, please call us at (206) 386-7387 (PETS) to make an appointment. When you come to reclaim your pet, please bring a form of photo ID and proof of ownership, and be prepared to pay applicable redemption fees. While we love caring for the animals here, we would like this to be your pet's first and only visit to us! Review our Lost Pet Prevention tips to keep your pet safely at home.
