Reporting Strays

If you see a stray dog, please call the Coquitlam Animal Shelter at 604-927-7387 (604-927-PETS). After Shelter hours call City Hall Customer Service at 604-927-3500. Also call the Shelter during reporting hours to report dead animals on the road. 

What information should I provide when reporting a stray?

  • Where you found or last saw the stray
  • Time of Day
  • Description of animal
  • Provide your best guess if you think you know the owner of that animal

Will the Shelter come and pick up stray animals?

The Shelter will pick up stray dogs; however, stray cats must be brought into the shelter.  Shelter staff will collect stray cats if you are unable to bring them to the shelter and you have them contained, for example in your garage, home, or in a crate/container.
