Fill out a Found Pet Report below. Include full details about the pet's marking, the area in which they were found and photos! (Please note that we do not share our lost and found reports with other shelters or animal control facilities. Please also contact other area shelters to notify them that you have found an animal.)
Take the animal to a veterinarian or animal shelter to scan for a microchip that contains information that will link the pet to the owner.
Check the animal's underside for a tattoo. Up until 2012, before the use of microchips, the Maryland SPCA tattooed all pets in our adoption center with a number. We still keep a registry linking these numbers to the pet owners.
If you can’t hold onto the animal while you search for its owner, call your local Animal Control agency or take the animal to the closest animal shelter. Our admissions department can be reached at [email protected] or by phone at (410) 235-8826 x100.
For all Lost and Found questions, please email [email protected] or call (410) 235-8826 x100.
