Helpful advise when looking for a lost pet

The following are tips for locating your cat or dog if the unthinkable happens:

  1. Search by car and on foot.
  2. Start searching immediately and don’t give up easily! Animals are found weeks, even months after they’re lost.
  3. Search small obscure spots in and around your home, even spaces you think are too small.
  4. Comb at least a 20-block area around your home.
  5. While searching, call out your pets name loudly and often. Shake a food or treat jar as you call out if that’s how you call them.
  6. Contact all animal shelters, animal control agencies, and veterinarians in your area immediately!
