I lost my pet.

If you lost a pet in Chula Vista, Lemon Grove, or National City, please go to the Chula Vista Animal Care Facility to look for your pet. If you cannot visit the facility, owners can search for their pets at

All animals at the Animal Care Facility are updated on the site daily. Only you can identify your lost pet. Do not rely on staff to tell you over the phone if your lost pet is there. Animals wearing an ID or license will often lose their tags.

If you visit the facility to discover your pet is not there, it is very important that you fill out a lost/found report and leave a flyer. When your pet is missing, it is imperative that you check the Animal Care Facility in person or search through at least every three days.

If you believe your pet is at the facility, bring a leash with you (for a dog) and any proof of ownership you may have.
