Reporting a Found Pet With Identification
If you find a lost dog or cat, there are many ways you can help reunite the pet with its owner. If the pet has identification, you should:
- Search our Pet Registration Database with the registration tag or tattoo number. The database contains more than 800,000 records of dogs and cats registered in Broward County since 1999. Your search result, if successful, will be the pet owners name, address, phone number and pet description.
- Call our Lost and Found Line at 954-359-1313, ext. 9273 and leave a message with the following information:
(a) Your name
(b) Your phone number
(c) Detailed description of the pet, including: type (cat or dog), breed, sex, and color(s)
(d) Registration tag number, tag color and license year (if available)
(e) Tattoo number located on the inner right thigh (if available)
Our staff will trace the registration tag or tattoo number and provide the pet owner's name, address and phone number to you. If we are unable to reach you, we will call the pet's owner and give them your name and phone number.
- Bring the pet to one of our shelters. Shelter Information
