Lost and found
If you have found a lost dog or cat, report it to both Animal Services and the Georgina Animal Shelter and Adoption Centre. When you report this animal right away Animal Services is able to pick up the animal as soon as possible so that it may be returned to its family.
Pet FBI is a free service and resource to help return lost pets back home. Register today, and if your pet goes missing, other local registered members will be alerted. This site also allows you to create flyers to post in your neighbourhood.
