WHERE IS MY PET? | A helpful guide from Riverside County Animal Services

This comprehensive list should help pet owners throughout Riverside County find the right shelter to look for their lost pet. We encourage all owners to microchip their pet to help make reunions happen fast.


Due to COVID-19, these services to the public are currently suspended. Our vaccination clinics will not occur on the first Wednesday evenings of the month, nor the third Saturdays of the month, per the usual schedule. Our spay and neuter services are currently unavailable until further notice. We apologize for the inconvenience.
