‘Surf the Net—About a Pet’
Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control has an easy way for residents to look for the right pet to adopt or to find lost pets. SNAP, a pet identification program, is available at www.pbcgov.com/SNAP.
In order to place more homeless pets into loving homes, we are now accepting pre-adoption applications for the dogs in our stray-holding kennel. All pre-adoptions are regular price - $58 adult dogs, $67 puppies - and non-refundable.
To place a pre-adoption:
Please note: refunds will not be given in the event the dog is redeemed by its original owner. You will have the option to select another pet or you will be issued an adoption voucher valid for use within six months.
Pet owners are asked to visit the shelter to complete a lost report and identify their lost pet. Lost reports can also be completed on-line. Stray animals are held for a limited time before they are placed in the adoption program, sent to rescue or humanely euthanized. Animal Care and Control business hours: M-F 11-6, Sat 10-5, Sun 11-4
The shelter is located at 7100 Belvedere Road in West Palm Beach, Florida approximately five (5) miles west of Interstate 95. Lost and Found Volunteers are available to assist pet owners at (561) 233-1282 or for south county residents 276-1344, ext. 41282. Animals rescued from the West County area (Pahokee, Belle Glade, Canal Point) are brought to the main shelter on Belvedere Road.
Find a current and clear color photograph of the lost pet and have colored copies made to attach to the lost report (including the adult owner in the photo with the animal may provide proof of ownership, exclude any children from photos.)
Bring the most current rabies vaccination certificate and any medical records
Be prepared to pay fines and any medical fees.
Look for your lost pet at other animal shelters.
Continue checking on SNAP at www.pbcgov.com/snap for your lost pet. Information is updated every 15 minutes.
