About our website

We provide a searchable database of pets that have been found by members of the public, local vets and animal rescues in the SS postcode area. If you have lost a pet, please look through our database of found animals. Please bear in mind that not all pets taken in by the organisations we work with get advertised so please see our lost and found guide for details of other groups you should contact.

We also list pets that are currently in the care of local rescues and are looking for a new home, so please take a look at our rehoming category to see these pets. Ensure you look through this category if you have lost a pet, too, as an unmicrochipped animal can be rehomed in as little as seven days!

We also provide other resources to help reunite you with your pet. You can create free custom leaflets and posters with your lost pets details by clicking here. You can also share details of your lost pet on the Pet Search South East Facebook page which we will then share with other organisations on your behalf. If you need more help, you can call us on 07724075473 at any time between 9am and 9pm every day, 365 days a year.

If you have found an animal please contact us on 07724075473. We will advertise on our website and social media to find an owner using our own contact information for the safety of the pet as well as your own.

Please note: You can now click the icon below many of our listed pets to donate to the charity involved in their rescue or rehoming.

If you are an animal rescue in the SS postcode area that would like the animals in your care to be listed on our website, along with downloadable posters and leaflets with your logo and phone number, please contact Sue on 07724075473.

Pet Search South East

Covering Southend, Rayleigh, Castle Point, Rochford & Maldon

Details of animals reported as lost no longer appear in search results but are still available through any social media links posted prior to the changover. All personally identifiable information (e.g. phone numbers) for lost pets has been updated on our website to use the contact details of the rescue that reported them. These rescues are responsible for maintaining their own records independently of Pet Search South East.

For all records held by Pet Search South East, your details will be removed either after five years have passed, your pet is reunited, or at your request, whichever is soonest. This is to ensure we remain compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). If you believe we hold information you would like us to remove please contact or call 07724075473.
