Reporting a Pet You Found
1. Call your local animal control office to report the found animal. Municipal animal control offices are a central location for lost and found pet information and are usually the first place that a pet owner will look when he or she has lost a pet.
2. Look for your pet on the pet posting page for a matching listing. This page is a shared database of lost/found pets reported to Animal Welfare Association, Animal Adoption Center, Homeward Bound Pet Adoption Center, and Voorhees Animal Orphanage. In South Jersey, specific animal shelters are responsible for lost and stray pets within corresponding townships. View the list here. Be sure to contact the appropriate shelter if a match is found.
3. The pet’s owners may be searching at other area shelters. Be sure to contact all area shelters with a found report including Almost Home Animal Shelter, Burlington County Animal Shelter, Cumberland County SPCA, and Gloucester County Animal Shelter.
4. Call your local animal shelter or Homeward Bound Pet Adoption Center at 856-401-1300 to remove your found pet from the website, which hosts a shared database of lost/found pets in Camden County.
