I found a pet. What can I do?

  • If the pet has a tag, use our Pet Tag Lookup tool to help identify the owner 
  • Bring the pet to PRC at 440 N. Falkenburg Road to have it scanned for a microchip
  • Turn the pet into the PRC during regular business hours. Please be advised: peak times are first thing in the morning and around noon. Longer wait times can be expected at these times. The in-take process can take more than an hour to complete. Please plan accordingly.
  • Visit the Lost and Found Pets of Hillsborough County Facebook page and check for postings from people who are missing a pet
    • If you don’t see a listing, post a lost pet notice with:
      • a clear photo of the pet
      • the date you found it
      • nearest major crossroads
      • contact number
      • if you want to remain private, you can message the page administrators with the information and picture
