Stray Animals

If you have found a domestic animal that you believe is lost, please call us at 604-519-2008. We will check our Lost Pet Reports to see if someone has reported the pet missing. We will also try to trace any identification the pet may have, such as a tattoo or microchip. If you find a pet after hours, we regret that we are unable to assist until we open the next morning.

Dogs are not allowed to roam in New Westminster. Please provide us with as much information as possible – size/colour of dog, direction in which they were moving, and exact location you saw them last. If you have the dog, you can bring them to the shelter at 420 Boyne Street during regular hours, or we may be able to pick them up. Please phone us at 604-519-2008 first.

Cats are allowed to roam, as long as they are spayed/neutered and have permanent identification. Chances are the cat belongs to someone, especially if they are friendly. Check with your neighbours to see if they recognize the cat. We do not want to inadvertently have someone’s cat removed from her/his neighbourhood. This decreases the chance of reunion significantly. However, if you think the cat is truly homeless or you are worried about their health/safety, please contact us. If you have the cat, you can them to the shelter at 420 Boyne Street during regular hours, or we may be able to pick them up. Please phone us at 604-519-2008 first.
