MORE SUGGESTIONS

  • Call police and animal control EVERY DAY (animal control keeps a record of found animals)

  • Go to area shelters in person EVERY DAY (pets may not be properly identified over phone) (contact shelters near and far)

  • Check with rescue groups (found on Internet)

  • Place ads in newspapers

  • Leave your pet's bedding and toys outside; your pet may pick up the scent;

  • Place a piece of your clothing that has been worn but not washed on your property (sweep the lawn with it as well as leave it outside); your pet may pick up the scent.

  • Post flyers with a color photograph of your pet and the word "LOST" along with phone # and SECURELY STAPLE on telephone poles, at vet offices, grocery stores, pet supply stores, drug stores, any kind of stores, libraries, churches, train stations, schools, and gas stations.

  • Be persistent; don't feel like you are bothering anyone by repeating your requests to find your pet; sometimes it takes awhile to find a missing pet.
