Lost & Found Friday – Jan 31, find your dog fast with this trick

The Lost & Found Friday column networks displaced pets from Ohio areas 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 each article.

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! Be sure to include date missing, area last seen, pet’s name – age – breed – and other distinguishing characteristics. Don't forget to provide contact information and a photo.

Today's Tip: how to find your dog fast, using this simple method

This tip is particularly helpful when you lose a dog in a heavily wooded area. Place your dog's crate in the last place you saw her, along with a familiar toy. Put an article of clothing that you have worn for at least a day by the crate, along with a bowl of water. The longer you have worn the article of clothing, the better – as it will help the dog pick up the scent. Put a note on the crate for any passers by, asking that the items not be disturbed. DO NOT leave food, as that may attract wild animals.

Check the crate/area several times a day. Hopefully, the dog will be waiting for you.

The lost and found pets that appear in these articles want to be reunited with their families, and their families are looking for them! Remember, the found pets here that end up in shelters will only get a three day hold grace period, and after that they can be euthanized! 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.

The Cleveland Pets Examiner runs a Lost & Found Friday column each week. Check the list every Friday here in the Cleveland Pets column and share it with others who you think may be able to help or network the information.
