Lost Pet Resources

We hope you never lose your pet, but if you do:

  • Start looking immediately. Do not assume that your pet will “come back when he’s ready.” Animal shelters are required to hold stray animals for only five days, after which they may be placed into a new home or humanely euthanized. Don’t give up! Many pets are found after being missing for weeks or even months.
  • Check with all neighbors within 4-6 blocks of your home. Sometimes pets, especially cats, are found a short distance from where they live.
  • Post signs in your neighborhood with a photo detailing your pet’s color, size, breed, age, sex and any identification. Offering a reward might speed your pet’s return.
  • Place ads in your local newspapers. Sometimes newspapers run lost & found ads at no charge.
  • Visit ALL animal shelters in your area as often as possible. Animals might be picked up in one area but taken to a shelter in a different place, so be sure to call and/or visit as many shelters as possible.
