What if I've found a pet?

West Valley and other local ordinances require citizens to turn strays over to their local animal shelter within 24 hours. The pet will have a greater chance of being reunited with its owner if it comes into the local animal shelter.

Do not set the pet free. It may be hit by a vehicle, attacked by another animal or may be scared and run further from its home.
