Search Tips

  • Set out unwashed clothes near garage or porch
  • Leave garage door open
  • Search at dusk with flashlight under bushes - many cats stay close to home
  • Visit the Center for Lost Pets online
  • For lost cats, set live traps. PAWS has live cat and kitten traps available for rental. We ask for a $60 deposit that is returned to you once the trap is returned to PAWS. Learn how to set a live trap here.
