What To Do When Your Pet Becomes Lost Hopefully most people will never have to experience a lost pet. In the case that something should happen, it is best to prepared. Having your pet tagged and micro-chipped will go a long way towards helping you reunite with your furry family member. 1. Micro-chipping- any lost pet can be scanned and quickly identify the owners. Microchips are tiny implants that can be implanted by a veterinarian or local Humane Society. When your pet has a microchip registered in your name and current information, you are much more likely to have your pet returned to you within hours vs days without a microchip. 2. Tags-ID tags can be purchased through a variety of sources. You can choose what information to place on the tag, from your pet’s name, phone number, address, email, veterinarian, and medical alerts. 3. Rabies Tag- your dog will be given a Rabies Tag once vaccinated. This tag may also be used to identify your pet and find you. 4. Put up Flyers-place around neighborhood, local veterinary clinics, pet stores, and groomers. 5. Canvass the Neighborhood-best option if your pet has been recently lost. Ask around to see if anyone has seen them. 6. Contact Animal Control/Humane Society/SPCA to see if your pet has been turned in. You can also file a lost report with them. Animal Control will only hold lost pets for a certain number of days, so check back daily. Contact many area shelters. 7. Use the Internet-the internet will get information out quickly. Many sites out there to help you find your lost pet. Facebook-be sure to have friends share your post. Check for local lost pet Facebook Profile (West Chester and Cincinnati both have one) Craigslist, City and County government pages, Petfinder.com lost and found dogs page Fidofinder.com for useful tipes and to post your lost dog 8. Contact your Veterinarian. Many hospitals will be contacted regarding finding a “lost dog/pet”. In addition, those that find lost pets will head into veterinary hospitals to have the found pet scanned for a microchip. Contact all area veterinary hospitals, not just your veterinary hospital. When a person finds a lost pet, they will do one of several things: They will contact Animal Control, drop the pet off at a local veterinary hospital, or keep the pet until the owner is found. If you cover all the bases with flyers, canvassing the neighborhood, and contacting Animal Control and local veterinary hospitals, you will have a very good chance of finding your pet and getting them home as quickly as possible.
