  • Lost or Found Pet

According to the National Council on Pet Population Study and Policy (NCPPSP), less than 2 percent of cats and only 15 to 20 percent of dogs are returned to their owners. Most of these were identified with tags, tattoos or microchips. Microchips are affordable and available at our Walk-In Wellness Clinic

How Does Lost and Found Work?

If we receive a lost pet, we check for a microchip and identification tag. If we find either a chip or a tag we begin tracking down the owner. Too often, we find that owners haven’t kept their microchip information up-to-date. When that happens, we call Animal Care and Control to see if they have a record of the microchip. If there is a veterinarian listed on the microchip record we’ll call them too.

Peggy Adams holds a lost pet a minimum of four business days, not including the day of intake, after which time they are evaluated for the adoption program. If you find your pet at our shelter, you will need to provide proof of ownership (medical records, photographs) and proof of rabies vaccination. By law, we cannot release an animal without proof of vaccination. If you cannot provide proof of vaccination, you will be required to pay for a rabies vaccination and tag. Owners of unsterilized pets will need to comply with the Palm Beach County spay and neuter ordinance.

If these animals are at Peggy Adams and their owner does not claim them, they may qualify for our adoption program. If so, they will be spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped prior to being made available for adoption. Our adoptable animal page will display their picture and information once they are available. ***Please do not call Peggy Adams requesting to adopt an animal on our lost and found listings. Follow the link below to see cats and dogs available for adoption.
