Animal Tracker

The Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA) has created an online database and website to help thousands of Oregonians looking for, or taking care of, unidentified animals at this time. Please visit the ODA Animal Tracker to search for your lost animal or list a found animal if you are caring for animals without a known owner.

We thank all that have stepped up to help and support our community during this time of need. Please stay safe!
