Found Animals

Searching for a lost pet? We know that can be very stressful! Please view the lost or stray animals here at the Houston SPCA

The Houston SPCA has lost or stray animals in our care after being rescued by our 24/7 injured animal ambulance or found by a concerned citizen and brought to the Houston SPCA. *If you have a found animal, we ask that you please call 713-869-7722 and make an appointment before coming to our campus. 

If you believe your lost pet is at the Houston SPCA, please visit us at 900 Portway Drive, Houston, TX 77024 so that you can make a positive ID in person. You will need to bring proof of ownership such as veterinary records, photos, microchip information, etc.  If you do not see your lost pet on our website, we encourage you to check other area shelters, especially the tax-funded, municipal animal control facilities, at least every other day. Many of the other cities in our region have individual animal control facilities. Please note that this is not a complete list:

HCPHES Veterinary Public Health (Harris County)

BARC (City of Houston)

Citizens for Animal Protection

Houston Humane Society


We also encourage you to register with and utilize PiP My Pet and Finding Rover to help you in the search for your lost pet. Both free apps use facial recognition technology to help reunite lost pets with their families.
