FYI - Coyote Awareness
It is important to keep small animals indoors at night and in the early morning because of the occassional coyote in the area.
While rare, they have been known to come up from the river to peruse the large open areas surrounding the airport and the vacant fields of Signal Hill.

- Call or visit Animal Control, 7700 East Spring Street
Long Beach, CA 90808. PH (562) 570-7387.
- Canvass the neighborhood with friends and treats.
- Search online. There are several online pet finding services; Pet Finder, Fido Finder and Sherlock Bones to name a few.
- Leave food and water out in your yard in case your pet comes home on his/her own. Do not leave food and water out on a regular basis - it attracts coyotes, raccoons and feral animals which can harm our pets.
- Make sure your pet is wearing a name tag with your cell phone number on it vs. your home number. Chances are you will be out looking for your pet and not in your home.
- Email a description and one jpeg image of your pet to firstname.lastname@example.org. For lost pets, please include the pet's name, sex and breed information. For found pets, please indicate where the animal was found.
