Losing a family pet can be a scary and sad event. If you've lost your pet, there are several steps you can take to help locate them.
- Notify Animal Control Services so we can help be on the lookout.
- Check your microchip and tag information with the microchipping company to help track your pet.
- Check with neighbors. Sometimes the neighbors see them outside and hold them in their backyard until you are home.
- Call local Veterinary clinics, sometimes people drop off pets there.
- Visit websites like Paw Boost or Lost my Doggie.com and report your missing pet.
- Use social media. There are several local city pages on apps like Facebook or Instagram where someone might have posted a found pet on the website. Also do a Facebook blast on your page and ask several local people to share.
- Use treats and favorite toys to lure them home. Call them using your favorite exciting expression!
- Set up a sensory area. Leave a towel or an article of clothing with your scent on it. If your pet is disoriented it might be attracted to your scent and follow it home.
