Daily, Call to Make an Appointment

Anyone can microchip their pets at Upland Animal Shelter for only $30 per pet.  A microchip provides permanent identification for your pet that won't fall off or become too worn to read.  If your pet is lost and found as a stray, shelters, rescues, and veterinarians will scan your pet for a microchip and contact you.

Trap, Neuter & Return

You can help improve lives and prevent pet overpopulation by helping us spay and neuter un-owned, community (feral) cats living near your home or business through our TNR Program.

This service is FREE to Upland residents and businesses.

Is Your Pet Lost?

  • Visit the shelter (and all other local animal shelters surrounding the area where your pet went missing) immediately. Do not rely on anybody else to "spot" your pet in a busy shelter environment. Look for yourself and check daily.
  • Check daily.
  • Post your own “Lost” flyer with a photograph of your pet near your house.
  • Post a photo and spread the word via the internet and social media so others know to look for your missing pet.
