To View Animals AT the Shelter
Kittens in Shelter

Whether you’re searching for a lost pet or looking for an animal to adopt, this database is the most up-to-date listing of all the animals being housed at our shelter. As any animal is picked up or dropped off at our shelter, our staff uploads a photo and description of the animals onto this site.  Animals will be listed here in the order they have come into the shelter. Try not to narrow your search necessarily by breed for we may list it differently based on characteristics/traits that we see.

To View Animals NOT at the Shelter
Lost and Found
The lost & found postings are for animals NOT at the shelter.  These are listings by citizens for citizens.  The following animals were lost or found in the Gaston County area.  These pets are not being held at Animal Care and Enforcement, rather they are being kept by the person or persons who found them.   If you have any information on any of the pets listed below, please contact using the number(s) provided.  If you have lost or found a pet and would like to post information concerning it online, email webmaster@gastongov.com and include the pet's breed, gender, color and characteristic markings, area lost/found, pet name, contact information, and any other pertinent information concerning the loss.  You may include up to two (2) photos (one head and one body shot) of the pet in either JPG, PNG or GIF format.  Please attach the photo to your email.  Do not embed or send links to online photo galleries.  Limit any attachments to a maximum of 10M or the email will be blocked because of file size and not delivered.  Allow for at least one business day for the posting to be listed.  You will be contacted by reply email when your ad is online.

Note: The date listed beside the animal is the date the information was posted and does not necessarily reflect the date the animal was actually lost or found.  If you lost your pet and it was not wearing identification, you must come to the shelter to see if it is there.

Be sure to check the “Found” part of the listings repeatedly!  Many times someone may find a pet and try to locate the owner themselves.  We steer as many people as possible to this part of our site to increase the chances of the pet’s safe and quick return to its owner.

Local newspapers generally offer free lost or found pet ads.  Don’t forget about “Craigslist”, “One Man’s Junk”, “Gaston Free Pets” and other paper & web sites.  Personalize this LOST PET or FOUND PET flyer template with the pet’s information and photo, print and post copies in the area where you lost or found the pet, stores, and in other high-traffic community locations.

Pets can often travel long distances or be transported to other areas by people finding them. If you are looking for a lost/found pet and don't see it listed below, you may also want to check with our surrounding counties:

Charlotte/Mecklenburg  704-336-3786
Lincoln   704-736-8734
Cleveland   704-481-9884

Animal Care and Enforcement staff members review postings often, and try to match these community-based postings with impounded animals.  Due to varying and sometimes critical circumstances, often requiring immediate action however, Animal Care and Enforcement cannot guarantee that a given posting will be accurately matched with an impounded animal. Animal Care and Enforcement does strongly encourage every pet owner to comply with legal responsibilities to display a valid license tag on your pet and otherwise make certain your pet has some kind of unique identification which can aid in efforts to reunite lost pets with their owners. This is the best way to ensure a positive identification and to prevent inaccurate postings.
