LOST PET TIPS

Be sure to check frequently with other organizations too, such as the Animal Foundation.

Search on finding rover

Finding Rover is a free mobile app that helps pet owners find their lost pets in real-time using facial recognition. Pet owners can register their pets on Finding Rover by uploading their phone number, entering a few details about their pet, and sharing their contact details. This is a free service.  

Print and post flyers

Good places to post your flyers include dog parks and runs, pet supply stores and pet grooming shops, and veterinary offices. Various commercial establishments like grocery and convenience stores, gas stations, laundromats, bars, cafes, and restaurants are other good high-traffic options.

Contact your pet's microchip company

Remember, identification can be a lifesaver for a lost pet. It’s a good idea for all your animal companions—even indoor-only pets—to always wear a collar with an ID tag that includes your name, current phone number, and any relevant contact information. If you’ve chosen to microchip your pet as a means of permanent identification, keep in mind that microchips are only as good as the information provided to the chip’s company.

Search Facebook, Twitter, and other online sites

Most communities have local “Lost Pet” Facebook pages where they will post information about missing pets. Reach out to those page administrators and see if they will share information about your pet. You can create your own Facebook page or digital card for your lost pet, and share it across your social networks—and ask friends and family to spread the word to their contacts.
