This weekly lost and found service networks displaced pets in the Northern part of Ohio. Most Lost & Found Friday columns here contain only pets from north of Columbus. To see pets lost and found all throughout the state of Ohio, please visit Lost & Found Ohio Pets on Facebook.
Please be sure to view the photos and details in the list attached to this article. The animals pictured here are not the only pets missing in Ohio, but are just the ones shared with L&F Ohio Pets this week. Lost & Found Ohio Pets reports that they have notices for more than 270 missing pets on their Facebook page.
Today’s Tip: license your pet
Cats in Ohio don't require licensing, but it's the law that your dog must be licensed. This can seem like a nuisance to pet owners, but a license serves two purposes. First, it is your dog's ticket home. The license tag he will receive has a number on it, and that number is recorded with your county's fiscal office. If your dog is lost, anyone who finds him can call the county with his license tag number and find you. Likewise, if animal control picks him up they will be able to trace his number back to his home. Most counties now offer an interactive search on their websites as well, where anyone who finds an animal with a license tag can enter the number and see who the dog belongs to.
The second purpose of a dog license is to fund the county animal shelter. Lost and stray pets that are picked up by animal control have to be fed and housed, and in some cases they are vaccinated so they can be rehomed.
If you have lost your pet or found a stray animal, please contact the Cleveland Pets Examiner or Lost & Found Ohio Pets with all of the information. The more information the better; date missing, area last seen, pet’s name – age – breed – and other distinguishing characteristics, contact information and a photo.
The lost and found pets that appear in this article want to be reunited with their families! If you see a pet in the list that is missing from your area, please keep on the lookout, and please continue to share with your friends.
Check the lost and found list every Friday here in the Cleveland Pets column and share it with others that you think may be able to help or network the information.
