Today's Tip – What to do if you find a stray pet
Do you know what to do if you find a stray pet?
- Check for a license or ID tag. If there are no tags, ask around the neighborhood where you found the animal to see if anybody knows him/her.
- Take the pet to the nearest vet or shelter to have him/her scanned for a microchip and checked for a tattoo.
- Notify all the authorities: call the local police (non emergency line), county kennel, local animal control (to complete a found dog report)
- Create 'found dog' posters and put them in high traffic areas and all animal related businesses.
- Post the animal on your local Craigslist, and on other online lost & found pet sites.
- Put a found pet ad in your local newspaper. (they are often free)
