Here are steps to take before contacting us:
🐾 Contact your local shelter to report your animal as “lost” immediately; if after hours, leave a message including your phone number, and call back the next day.
🐾 Spread the word locally right away to your neighbours, family & friends; post your lost pet on your local Facebook Lost and Found groups or pages, including a picture & area where missing from.
🐾 List your pet on helpinglostpets.com as it’s a national database & free to use; it also creates an automatic flyer, which you can print & distribute immediately.
🐾 If your pet is microchipped, call the company to report your pet missing.
🐾 Advise your vet, groomer, pet sitter.
🐾 If after hours, contact all Emergency Vet Clinics, in case your pet was taken to one of them.
🐾 Physically search for your pet.
🐾 If your pet was not located within 24hrs, create large neon bright posters/signs for intersections, to increase local awareness of your missing pet; see our tutorial video here for effective signage: CLICK HERE >.
🐾 Enlist family/friends to assist with posters installation & flyers distribution.
🐾 If your pet was stolen (actually seen being stolen), immediately contact Police to file a report & take note of occurrence number; provide as much details as possible.
