About our website

Pet Search South East is a searchable database used by local vets, RSPCA and various Cats Protection branches to record animals that have been found locally. If you have lost a pet, please look through our database of found animals as well as our rehoming category as an unmicrochipped animal can be rehomed within 7 days if not claimed. Also read through our lost and found guide for advice and phone numbers.

You can also create free custom leaflets and posters with your lost pet's details by clicking here.

Details of animals reported as lost no longer appear in search results but are still available through any social media links posted prior to the changover. All personally identifiable information (e.g. phone numbers) for lost pets has been updated on our website to use the contact details of the rescue that reported them. These rescues are responsible for maintaining their own records independently of Pet Search South East.

For all records held by Pet Search South East, your details will be removed either after five years have passed, your pet is reunited, or at your request, whichever is soonest. This is to ensure we remain compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). If you believe we hold information you would like us to remove please contact or call 07724075473.
