The Amanda Foundation serves as the City's primary shelter for animals that have been picked up by Animal Control or other City staff. SPCALA serves as the secondary shelter. Animals only go to the County's Carson shelter if the other two locations are unavailable. If you have lost a pet, please check the Amanda Foundation's website and Facebook page as well as SPCALA. You may also want to contact the L.A. County Department of Animal Care and Control as they are the City's animal control servicer.
Lost and Found Animal Hotline: (888) 440-9366
Through an innovative pilot program, people who have lost their animal(s) or who have found a lost animal(s) are now able to call the above telephone number at The City of West Hollywood. This is the new toll-free Lost and Found Animal Hotline to locate missing pets.
The Lost And Found Animal Hotline is a telephone information center where callers can leave a message to report a lost animal or a found animal and can also listen to a recording of lost and found animals. Information on the Lost And Found Animal Hotline will remain for 10 consecutive days.
Lost a Pet
If you have lost a pet and you hear a description of your lost pet on the hotline, you can contact a City liaison that will help facilitate a reunion between your lost pet and you, the owner(s).
As a result of resident concerns, the City of West Hollywood has contracted with The Amanda Foundation, a non-profit organization who temporarily house lost animal companions. If your companion animal is retrieved by Los Angeles County Animal Care and Control it will now be transported locally to the Amanda Foundation located at 351 North Foothill Road in Beverly Hills. The facility is open for animal pick-up Monday through Saturday. It has a fully equipped veterinary clinic on the premises should medical attention for an animal be necessary.
All animal companions who have not been reclaimed after a 10-day stay at the Amanda Foundation facility, will then be transferred to the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (spca-LA) facility, 12910 Yukon Avenue in Hawthorne. Once the animal is placed at the spca-LA Adoption Center, it will be held for a minimum of four days, after which time it will be held indefinitely pending adoption.
