If you are bringing a coughing dog to The Animal Foundation, please do NOT bring him or her into the Admissions/Lost & Found Lobby. Instead, please remain in your car or away from the entrance and call 702-384-3333 x170 for assistance.


Lost & Found

If your pet is lost, take action immediately! 

The Animal Foundation accepts all lost and stray pets in City of Las Vegas,
City of North Las Vegas, and Clark County. If you have lost a pet in the City of Henderson,
please contact the Henderson Animal Shelter.

Lost and stray pets picked up by City of Las Vegas, City of North Las Vegas, or Clark County Animal Control are brought to The Animal Foundation. The Animal Foundation also accepts lost and stray pets brought in by members of the community.

Lost pets brought to the The Animal Foundation are legally required to be held for 72 hours, unless claimed sooner by their owners. Owners of pets with identification will be contacted via phone and/or email. Stray cats with no identification brought to The Animal Foundation from the jurisdictions of the City of Las Vegas and Clark County are exempt from the 72 hour legal hold and may be evaluated for adoption upon intake.  In most cases, community cats are also excluded from the legal hold requirement and may be evaluated immediately.

After the 72 hour hold, animals will be evaluated and may no longer be available to reclaim. If you lose your pet, we strongly recommend you visit The Animal Foundation immediately. Our online database is updated hourly, however, in addition to searching found pets online, it is important to visit our campus to search for your pet as soon and as often as possible as a variety of circumstances may cause a delay in the posting of your animal’s photo or profile.

Search Finding Rover


Finding Rover is a free mobile app that helps pet owners find their lost pets in real-time using facial recognition. Pet owners can register their pets on Finding Rover for free by uploading their pet’s photo, entering a few details about their pet and sharing their contact details. Once a pet is registered, it is protected for life as The Animal Foundation’s entire database of dogs and cats is continually uploaded and integrated into Finding Rover.
