This weekly lost and found column networks displaced pets from Ohio areas north of Columbus. Most 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: make it easy to contact you
Lost & Found Ohio Pets reports that one of the most frustrating things about running a service to help people network their lost and found animals is getting people to post good contact info. So many people are concerned with privacy these days that they may post a lost animal and only give their Facebook profile page as a contact. But that is a very bad idea!
Because of Facebook's default privacy settings, when someone who is not among your Facebook friends tries to contact you, their message is automatically routed into a separate message folder, and will not appear in your inbox. That means that if a stranger finds your pet (much more likely than someone you know finding your pet) you may totally miss their attempt to contact you!
Always provide a contact phone number or email address. You want to be reachable at all times when your pet goes missing!
The lost and found pets that appear in this article want to be reunited with their families. 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.
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.
Lost & Found Friday is brought to you by the Cleveland Pets Examiner and Lost & Found Ohio Pets. Contact: email@example.com or Lost & Found Ohio Pets if you know that one of this week’s lost pets has been reunited with family.
