Lost and found 

Lost animals

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.

About the Georgina Animal Shelter and Adoption Centre

The Georgina Animal Shelter and Adoption Centre provides care and shelter for stray cats and dogs from Georgina, Newmarket, East Gwillimbury and Aurora. All cats and dogs picked up by Animal Services officers from these four municipalities are brought to the Georgina Animal Shelter, if they cannot be returned home. Rehoming requests are reviewed and accepted on a case-by-case basis.
