Animal Help Resources


What to do if you have lost your pet

(These same procedures & resources should be utilized if you find a stray animal)

* Contact your local police department (non-emergency number) or animal control to see if your pet has been     reported found.

* Contact local veterinarian offices to see if anyone has reported seeing your lost pet. This is also important       because many lost pets are taken to a vet to be scanned for a microchip.

* Put posters up in a 5 block area around your home.(place in plastic sleeve to protect from rain) Include a        description of your pet, a photo if possible, and your contact information. Place signs in local pet                      stores, vet offices, and local schools (use the eyes of hundreds of students to help find your pet)

* Utilize social media and the internet to get the word out. The following links offer a “lost and found” for            pets, where you can post information on your lost pet, as well as search the “found” section to see if your      pet has been found:

* Find Toto

* Lost Pet USA

* Facebook Lost Cats

* Facebook Lost Dogs

* Craigslist Lost and Found

* Call local animal shelters and rescue organizations to let them know you are looking for a lost animal.

* You can find a list of local animal rescues by logging on to Pet Finder Shelters and Rescues and enter             your zip code.
