I Found a Dog


If the dog is wearing a Yolo license tag, call the shelter during business hours at (530) 668-5287, press extension 3 when prompted. We can assist in reaching out to the owner based on tag info. 

If the pet is wearing our new pethub license tag, you can also call the 24hr line at 1-(855) 411-0123 or go to the website


Check for a microchip. Any vet office or shelter can scan the pet for you to see if he/she has a microchip and reach out to owners that way.

If you have the chip number, you can also research which company it is registered with at
