The City of La Quinta contracts with the Riverside County Coachella Valley Animal Campus in Thousand Palms for our shelter services. They feature shelter, lost/found and pet adoptions among their services. They also maintain a website for lost and found animals. You can reach them at (760) 343-3644.
Lost pets that are licensed and wearing tags are united more quickly with their owners.
