Lost Your Pet?
We’re so sorry that you’ve lost your pet. As pet owners ourselves, we know that this can be an extremely stressful and difficult time for you. Below you’ll find a number of steps you should follow to help maximize the opportunities to find your pet.
If you’re looking for a lost pet and they are microchipped, the good news is that your pet is over 2x more likely to be returned home. Be sure to call your veterinarian and/or the microchip company right away to make sure your contact information is up-to-date.
Found a Pet?
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.
Here are some steps to take if you’ve found a pet.
What about kittens?
During the spring and summer months, thousands of kittens are brought to animal shelters by well-meaning good Samaritans. If you find kittens, please think twice before removing them from their outside home. Kittens are 50% less likely to survive when taken away from their mothers before they reach 8 weeks old.
