You must go in person to the Los Angeles County/Carson Shelter, located at 216 W. Victoria Street in Carson (two blocks east of Figueroa and 190th). Only you can identify your animal. This shelter takes in thousands of animals per year. Do not call to ask if they have your animal; you must go and look. Some, but not all, animals in the shelter are shown on the County website. It is imperative that you go to the Carson Shelter in person to determine whether your pet is there. It is also important that you request to see the animals in the infirmary and back rooms!
The daily "Live/Dead" animal log, in the Carson shelter lobby, is a record of the animals picked up by the County. You should examine that log to see if an animal described as similar to yours has been picked up. Ask shelter staff to show you where to find the Live/Dead animal log.
