Missing Cats - Lost Pet Resources


The Police Department's Animal Services Unit does not loan cat traps, nor do they impound stray cats. If you have found a cat that appears to be lost, sick, or injured, you may do one of the following:
  • Contact Broomfield Animal Services and report the cat as "found" and an animal services officer will explain all available options.
  • Take the cat to the Humane Society of Boulder Valley.
  • Turn the cat loose.
  • If the cat is sick or injured:
    • Call Broomfield Animal Services
    • Take the cat to the Humane Society of Boulder Valley (please visit their website for hours of operation). The cat will be taken in free of charge. The Humane Society has a full veterinary staff that can address the cat’s medical needs.
    • If after hours, you may transport the cat to Northside Emergency Veterinary Clinic for treatment.
