Helping our community’s pet thrive
Reuniting lost pets with their owners
We are thrilled when we can help lost pets find their way home to their families.
If your pet is lost, do not delay. Here are tips to help speed up your reunion:
- Don’t despair
- Fill out the HSNB lost pet report
- Check our Facebook page regularly to see if your pet was brought in as a stray
- Check out other shelters in the area
- If you suspect your pet is at a shelter call us! It is critical to schedule an in-person appointment to claim your pet.
- Check other Facebook pages such as Vallejo’s Lost Dogs (Cats are listed too)
- Check Nextdoor– neighbors often post found dogs here.
- Go old school – don’t underestimate the power of posting lost pet posters in your neighborhood and at local gathering places.
We wish you a quick and happy reunion.
MICROCHIPPING YOUR PET, WHY ITS IMPORTANT
Only a small percentage of the pets brought to HSNB have microchips with up-to-date contact information. Collars and tags fall off or get lost, but with an up-to-date microchip, your pet can be returned to you quickly.
A microchip is a permanent form of identification that will not fade or be lost over time. The microchip consists of a tiny capsule, about the size of a grain of rice, which is permanently injected just beneath the skin between the shoulder blades. The process is safe, quick, painless, and requires no anesthesia.
Microchips cost $20. Call (707) 645-7905 to make an appointment to get your pet microchipped.
The HSNB uses MICHELSON FOUND ANIMAL microchips, with free lifetime registration. You can also register any brand microchip for free with the MICHELSON FOUND ANIMAL registry.
Simply go to: Found.org/start
- Set up an account
- Register the pets in your household.
- Login and update your information when any information changes.
Keep your contact information updated
If your pet has a microchip but the contact information isn’t current, it’s the same as having no chip at all! If you rehome your pet, make sure the contact information is updated with new owner’s details.
Surrendering a pet
We understand that sometimes unfortunate circumstances occur in life that require the difficult decision to give up a beloved family pet. We understand that parting with your pet can be especially hard and we are committed to working with you to ensure the best possible solution for your pet and you.
Please call our office (707)645-7905 to make an appointment to surrender your pet.
We need to ensure kennel space is available, and that your pet is a fit for our adoption program, or for one of our rescue partners.
At your appointment to surrender your pet, please bring the following:
1.A driver’s license or other government issued ID.
2.Your pet’s veterinary records.
3.The surrender fee. The cost to care for and re-home pets can be hundreds of dollars for each animal (vaccines, microchips, food, and general care). We ask for a $90 surrender fee to help offset this cost.
Please arrive 15 minutes early to your appointment for time to complete the required forms. Our goal is to find a wonderful home for every healthy and treatable pet. The more we know about your dog or cat, the more likely we are to find a him or her a suitable new home.
Please note that the Humane Society of the North Bay is a nonprofit animal shelter with limited kennel space — we do our best to accept surrendered pets, therefore planning as far in advance as possible will help ensure the best outcome for your pet.
Caring for Wildlife
The HSNB is not equipped to offer care for wildlife. If you find abandoned or injured wildlife, please take it to the Suisun Wildlife Center at 1171 Kellogg St., Suisun City, CA 94585, (707) 429-4295. They have the facility, staff, and training to provide the vital care needed for orphaned and injured wildlife found in Solano County.
