Lost and Found

Have you lost your pet or found a stray? Contact us at the Trinity Animal Shelter at (530)623-1370 and let us know! We at the shelter take care of a lot of animals that come and go and we do our best to reunite animals with their owners. These are a couple of ways to make sure your pet gets back home to you sooner:

  • Microchip your pet. If your pet somehow looses its collar, we can detect its microchip and contact the company to retrieve your contact information.

  • All dogs are required to be licensed. If you make sure your dog at least wears its license tag on its collar, we can look up its license number, and get in contact with you a lot quicker than with a dog who does not wear its tag.

Lost Pets

If you still have not found your pet, here are a few things you can do around your neighborhood that can help improve your chances of finding your pet:

  • Check with your local shelter at (530)623-1370 to see if they have any animals there that might be your pet. No matter if they do or don't, stop by and check out all the animals just in case. If they don't they will take down the information regarding your pet so if an animal does come in that might be it, they will contact you.

  • Make lost pet posters. Include a good picture of your pet, its name, description and your contact information such as phone number and name. Post your lost pet posters all over your neighborhood. You can put posters at your local shelter and vet's office. You could also make a post on facebook.

  • Check with your neighbors.

  • Check with your local paper for advertisements in the found pets section. It is free of charge if someone wants to put an ad in the Trinity Journal (530)623-2055 for a found pet and the ad will run for up to two (2) weeks.

Found Pets

If you have found a pet, there are several ways to try and find its owner:
  • Check with your neighbors.

  • Check with your local shelter for pets that have been reported missing.

  • Check your community bulletin boards for lost pet posters or facebook for lost pet posts.

  • It is free of charge to put a found pet ad in the Trinity Journal (530)623-2055 for up to two (2) weeks.
