Found a stray animal or pet? You can report it here.
If you have found an animal in your neighborhood, it most likely lives nearby. Before reporting a stray, take the steps below to see if you can help the pet get back home safely.
Emergencies such as severely injured pets will be handled as quickly as possible. All other shelter intake of stray and owner surrendered pets is done by appointment. This has been proven to be the best way to serve the people and pets of our community in an efficient and effective manner.
Although hundreds of appointments are available each week, at times demand for services outpaces the availability of staff so there may be some delay in getting an appointment.
Take the following steps before reporting a stray animal to see if someone has reported their pet missing:
- Visit the Lost and Found Pets of Hillsborough County Facebook page
