The Orange County Animal Services Lost & Found Pet Forum is a place for people to connect if they have lost or found a pet. The Forum has recently been upgraded and now features a map option for improved opportunities to match lost and found pets.
The revised Forum no longer requires an account for utilization, but posters will need to provide either a phone number or email address, which will be viewable by other users. Animal Services recommends uploading a recent photo of your pet for best chances of reunification.
The new Forum also allows individuals who have found a pet and brought that animal to the shelter to make a posting. Animal Services encourages finders to take this opportunity to share the original location where the pet was found, hopefully increasing the chances of the pet being identified by their owner(s).
New postings to the Forum are reviewed by shelter staff and will be viewable to the public within 48 hours of submission. Users with inquiries or experiencing any technical difficulties are asked to email AnimalServices@ocfl.net for assistance.
Note: This forum is an internet tool to aid in locating a missing pet and should not be treated as a substitute for looking for your pet in person.
