What To Do If Your Pup Goes Missing
After moving into a new home, a family noticed that one of their dogs had somehow slipped out and was missing. Worse, this dog was disabled after suffering a spinal stroke as a puppy. Frantic, they began to search the heavily wooded areas behind their house. After several hours with no result, an internet search located a search and rescue company that specialized in finding lost pets. Two hours later, success! What can you do now to ensure finding your pet should they go missing?
- Be prepared. Have a folder stashed on your computer or in a desk drawer with useful information about your pet.
- Create a contacts list in your phone of all shelters in your immediate area.
- Have clear current photos of your pup at the ready.
- Be sure your pup's chip and tags information is current. Consider adding that you can be texted on the tag.
- Use your cellphone number as the contact on your posters so that you are not tied to a landline.
- Sadly, there are scammers who may claim to have your pet and will ask for a fee in order to return them. Be aware. Ask questions.
