Found Animals Listing

Animals that have been found by Animal Care can be viewed at the Found Animals Listing.

Lost Animals

Any animal found running at-large in Garden Grove may be picked up by Garden Grove Animal Care Services. Animals picked up as stray are taken to the Orange County Humane Society. If your pet is microchipped, Garden Grove Animal Care Services staff will have scanners to immediately determine a microchip's presence and related information. Please make sure the microchip information on file with the microchip company is accurate and up to date. If you need to verify your animal's microchip or contact the microchip company, please contact your local veterinary office. The veterinarian should be able to provide you with the brand of chip and how to verify contact information.

Found Animals

If you have found an animal, you should notify Garden Grove Animal Care Services for pick up, or take it to the Orange County Humane Society immediately in order to reduce the delay in reuniting pets with their rightful owners. If you are interested in keeping an animal you have found, ask the shelter about a hold tag. If the owner is not located, you can apply to adopt it. The Orange County Humane Society has many wonderful animals that need loving homes.
