It’s perfectly natural to feel overwhelmed when caring for a found animal! The Good News? You’re not alone and many animal control shelters now offer resources to aid caretakers in their efforts of reuniting! Why? Because finders typically represent the highest opportunity for reuniting found pets with their families while animal shelters typically represent the lowest. Additionally, a finder’s home allows the least stressful environment for the animal in the intermediate in an otherwise confusing and stressful time – preserving both the animal’s health and well being.
If there is no caretaker available to assist in efforts of reuniting, contact your local animal control for placement. These tax-funded shelters may also assist with field services and serve as the legal authority for suspected abandonment, cruelty and neglect.
