Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

If you have lost a pet in the cities of Chula Vista, Lemon Grove, National City or Imperial Beach please go to the Chula Vista Animal Care Facility to look for your pet. Only you can identify your lost pet, do not rely on shelter staff to tell you on the phone whether your lost pet is at the shelter. Animals wearing an ID or license will often lose the tags. Once at the shelter, you can fill out a lost or found report or leave a flyer. This is a very important step that should not be missed. We encourage all owners to check the shelter in person at least every three days. Bring a leash with you and any proof of ownership you may have.

About Our Shelter:

The Chula Vista Animal Care Facility's new shelter location opened in the Fall of 2001. Services include stray and nuisance animal pick-up, acceptance of lost and relinquished animals, assistance for injured and sick stray animals, control of biter, vicious or threatening animals, barking dog complaints, animal cruelty, fighting animals, animals in hot cars, lost and found assistance and dog licensing.

The Chula Vista Animal Care Facility encourages owners to spay and neuter their pets. There is a serious pet overpopulation problem occurring right now in San Diego causing in thousands of unwanted pets to be euthanized (put to sleep) each year. By spaying or neutering your pet before it has offspring you can be a part of the solution to this problem. Call your veterinarian today or call us for a referral to a local veterinarian participating in low-cost program.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
