Found Pets Currently at the Sacramento SPCA

Before your visit, please check our hours of operation for any special updates.


The animals listed below are lost pets currently in our care. If you believe a listed animal is yours, please do each of the following:

Understand that it is important that you act quickly to reclaim your lost pet. We are required by law to hold stray animals for three business days. Given the hundreds of animals in our care, we are unable to hold your pet longer than that time period and must immediately begin placement consideration after the three-day stray hold has passed.

Immediately come to the Sacramento SPCA during available business hours. Our Intake Department is open for stray reclaims Monday through Sunday 11:00 am – 5:00 pm.

Do not call and leave a voicemail, email, or contact us via social media. Our call and email volume is high and our social media pages are not monitored 24 hours a day. Your pet may be placed before we receive your communication.

There will be fees upon redemption of a stray animal. Those fees will be calculated based upon a number of factors, including the jurisdiction in which the animal resides, whether the animal is licensed, any medical costs incurred, and the length of stay in the shelter. You’ll be advised of these fees at the time of redemption.
