LOST PETS OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA
The volunteer team at Lost Pets Of South Australia work tirelessly to get lost pets back to their families that love them.
Helping lost pets return to their loved ones. No judgments, just help.
Our main objective is to reunite lost pets and their owners. We believe that in a perfect world all pets would be desexed, micro chipped, wearing collars and never stray from home. Unfortunately we don't live in a perfect world and we understand that things happen.
Our Search & Assist Team in the field help reunite pets faster scanning for microchips, assisting with recovery and catching many pets at large getting them to safety quickly. Our investigation team works closely with local shelters to make sure that your pets don't get wrongly identified and matches are made.

A message from the management of Lost Pets Of South Australia
It’s simple. Australians love pets.
In fact Australia has one of the highest rates of pet ownership in the world with more than 63% of Australian households owning a pet.
There wouldn’t be many Australian’s that can’t remember their first pet and the memories that pet brings.
There is estimated to be 4.2million dogs in Australia, that’s 19 dogs for every 100 people. Cats come in second with an estimated 3.3million in Australia. That’s 15 cats for every 100 people! That’s a lot of cats and dogs!
In South Australia it’s estimated that we own 357,000 dogs and 251,000 cats but if you add up all the other pets including horses, guinea pigs, rabbits etc the total number of pets in South Australia is estimated to be over 3,908,000. Wow!
Lost Pets of South Australia (LPSA) are at the coal face of the pet community, working with South Australians to help lost and found pets in South Australia get home quickly.
Sadly despite Australian’s great love of pets less than 27% of all animals reported to LPSA as missing or found are microchipped.
When you think that it is reported that 91% of Australian pet owners report feeling ‘very close’ to their pet, reinforcing that pets are an integral member of the family unit, however constituted and more than 1.1 million Australian households (14.9%) are planning to get a pet in the next 12 months, imagine their heartbreak if their pet was lost and never returned.
The simple fact is a microchipped pet has a better chance of getting home quicker than one that isn’t. A pet that is able to be returned directly to their owner also decreases the enormous burden on our shelters holding lost pets and reduces the cost to local councils.
That’s why Lost Pets of South Australia Inc are presenting 'ChipBlitz’ - an affordable microchipping program to get as many pets in South Australia microchipped as possible.
