Tips for Finding a Lost Dog

Don't delay. Look for your dog as soon as you realize it is missing.

 

The First 3 days:

  • Don't delay. Look for your pet as soon as you realize it is missing. Go for a walk, or a bike ride, around the neighborhood, talking or calling as you go. Leave some clothes you've worn, or some bedding the pet's used, outside. A lost pet often will hide during the day, so be sure to go out again at night with a flashlight and call for her. Continue to go for walks, both in the daytime, and after dark. Go a mile in each direction, for dogs, and half mile for cats.
  • Could your pet have become trapped in a garage, basement, or an outbuilding? Talk to your neighbors, and ask them to check their vehicles, garages, outbuildings, etc. Let people know the pet's missing.
  • Were any tradesmen working nearby the day the pet disappeared? If so, call them, to see whether the pet may have taken a ride in their vehicle.
  • Contact your local Animal Control or Pound. Take them written information, and a picture if possible. Go see them every day.

    It is always best to go by the animal shelter and see the animals or talk with an officer. Bring a picture to leave, if possible, as descriptions may be confusing.
