Mission Statement.

Our pets are part of our family and when they are lost, a part of us is lost as well. The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office created a website that is available to enter a lost or found animal without delay. “PCSO C.A.R.E.S ” (Pinellas County Animal Rescue and Entry System) site is available 24 hours a day. With the implementation of this site it is our hope that the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office can help reunite a beloved pet with its family. We thank you for visiting our site and hope that this site will be a valuable tool to assist in the recovery of your pet.
