Here’s what to do to increase the chances of its safe return:
Create a Poster
Use Adobe Reader to create your own Lost Pet Poster. Just click
the image above and follow the instructions to print a poster with your pet's photograph,
description, address and phone.
Adobe and Reader are either registered trademarks or trademarks of Adobe Systems
Incorporated in the United States and/or other countries.
Keep up-to-date identification on your pet at all times. Make sure you place
a tag with a name and phone number on a break away collar. Microchip your
pet as well. Collars can be lost or removed.
Keep a photo (preferably in digital form) of both a full-face view and a full body
view in case needed for a poster or web posting.
When your pet goes missing:
- Immediately contact your local Animal Control Officer, the veterinarians in your
area, private animal shelters and your local police department
- Using current photographs make a LOST PET POSTER (click
here to use a pre designed template)
- Distribute posters at intersections throughout the area your pet was last seen.
- Place posters at all convenience stores, veterinarians, post offices and other well
- It is suggested to offer a reward, even a small one if possible. This stands
out when people read the poster
- If the pet is not immediately found use local newspapers or radio to get the word
out. Many of these organizations do these bulletins as a public service
