Lost & Found


PLEASE use this guide. It has worked for others and it can work for you!


Contact Animal Agencies- Call all humane societies, animal care and control agencies and animal protection organizations within a large radius to file a report. Don't assume your pet has been stolen. More cats and dogs stray from home than are stolen.

Search the Neighborhood -Walk and/or drive through your neighborhood several times a day. Early morning and sunset are prime times. Talk to anyone whom may have seen your cat or dog, such as joggers, mail and newspaper carriers.

Notify Others - Call your veterinary clinics, especially those who offer boarding for cats and dogs. Injured pets are often taken to a veterinarian for care prior to transfer to an animal shelter.

Use the Power of Scent -Place a recently-worn article of clothing in your yard; for litter box trained cats place their box outside. Familiar scents can bring your cat or dog home.

Advertise - Post fliers all around your neighborhood, including major intersections and at all public places. Place an ad in the classified section of your local paper (see reference to D&C below). Offer a reward. Contact WVIN 98.3 to list with their Pet Patrol.

Don't Give Up! - Keep searching even when you have little hope left. Cats and dogs who have been lost for months have been reunited with their owners.
