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:

We wish you a quick and happy reunion.

Vet Injecting MicroChip into a dog


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.

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.

HSNB has many requests for surrendering privately-owned family pets to our shelter and you may contact us to discuss whether or not this is an option for you and us. Please be aware that due to extreme limitations on space at our facility, where we are already housing dozens of adoptable and stray animals, there may be
no kennel room available.

If we are able to pursue this further here’s what you need to know:

1. We will need to schedule a meeting at HSNB for a behavioral evaluation to see if the pet is sociable enough to integrate into our population. An appointment with your pet is not a guarantee of acceptance.

2. You will be required to provide proof of ownership.

3. We are only able to accept pets from Vallejo. You will be required to present a driver’s license or other government issued ID.

4. If your pet is accepted for surrender, there will be fees that will differ depending on spay/neuter status, vaccination status, and whether you want to surrender more than one pet.

If you would like to pursue this, please send an email to with detailed information about your pet and a photo. We will do our best to assist in finding your family member a home.

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.
