Lost & Found Pets

As soon as you realize your pet is missing contact Charlotte County Animal Control, the Animal Welfare League, and other area shelters. All animals picked up by Animal Control are brought to the Animal Welfare League. By law, stray animals become our property after 5 days and they may be placed for adoption.


If you have found a pet, you may call Animal Control at (941) 833-5690. They will pick up the animal and bring it to the Animal Welfare League where it will be posted on this site.
