Found Animals  

If you have found an animal, you should either notify Costa Mesa Animal Control for pick up or take it to the Newport Center Animal Hospital immediately in order to reduce delay in reuniting pets with their rightful owners. If you are interested in keeping an animal you have found, ask the shelter about a hold tag. If the owner is not located, you can apply to adopt it. The Newport Center Animal Hospital has many wonderful animals that need loving homes.
