Animal Services rescues lost dogs after fireworks

Many waiting for owners at shelters

Nearly two dozen dogs were waiting for their owners at the county’s three animal shelters on Friday morning, following July 4th firework shows.

Animal control officers expect the numbers to increase as they continue finding lost dogs.

Officers scan all the animals they rescue and will take any that are microchipped straight home if they don’t have a priority call waiting.

Owners who are looking for their pets should first the check county Animal Services website’s lost and found page,, to see if there  is a photo of their dog and, if so, make arrangements to claim their pet. Otherwise, pet owners can call Animal Services at 619-767-2675. The county’s animal shelters are in Carlsbad, San Diego and Bonita.
