4. Check with Our Staff

Several 3-ring binders are located in Customer Service, listing found animals that are not on view. They may be held at someone’s home, at a veterinary clinic, deceased, or in quarantine.

5. Don’t give up!

Some pets have been reunited with their owners months or even years after being lost.

Also try to:

  • Contact the people closest to where your pet was lost.
  • Post signs in the area, with a description and a photo if possible.
  • Take out a classified ad in the local newspaper. Many newspapers offer free “lost pet” ads.
