AC&C has set up an online lost report for missing pets and a found report for recovered pets within the community in an effort to help reunite owners with their pets.
Note: if you found a pet and cannot hold on to it while actively looking for the owner, you can bring the pet to our shelter ONLY IF you found it within Mecklenburg County. We do NOT take in pets that are found outside of the county. Also know that we no longer take in adult cats that reside outside; this could be an owned indoor/outdoor cat or a community cat and there is no leash law so they are allowed to roam. Learn more about
community cats and what to do is you see a cat outside.
Below are options to assist you with searching or reporting a lost/found pet.
Pet owners: if you have moved, changed your phone number, or haven't registered your pet's microchip with us,
UPDATE OR REGISTER their microchips right now!
