||Go To The Animal Shelter. Only you can positively identify your pet.
As much as they would like to help you, they cannot identify your animal over
Check the shelter at least every 72 hours. Unlicensed stray dogs and cats
are only required to be held that long before they are euthanized. Most animals
are never claimed, and if they cannot be adopted out, they are euthanized.
||Make up fliers. A flier with your pets description (with a picture if possible),
including sex, color, tags, collars or distinguishing characteristics, the
area lost and your information may help someone to contact you.
Post the notices on
supermarket bulletin boards, Animal Services Lost and Found Board, schools, and leave them with nearby neighbors. If you live in
an apartment complex, post notices by the mail boxes.
If you have recently moved, leave notices with neighbors in your old
neighborhood, and check with agencies in that area. If you have lost a purebred dog, check with current
Breed Rescue Clubs.
