Losing your pet can be a devastating experience. Trying to find your pet can be frustrating and confusing.
A loose dog can cross any township boundary within two hours. Check as many
pounds as possible around your community and do it often. Dogs are often
stolen, mated, and dumped. A male will reappear in a few weeks, and females
after the puppies are weaned. Use the checklist below as soon as possible to
aid in locating your pet.
Loss Prevention Tips: For prevention of sale of recovered strays to a research lab, have your dog tattooed and registered with the appropriate registry (such as National Dog Registry 1-800-NDR-DOGS) or micro-chipped (ask your vet for information). Keep ID tags or licenses on your pet at all times. Keep it confined and walk it on a leash. Train it to always respond to your commands. For information on training your pet, contact one of the training facilities in your area.
Spaying or neutering may make your pet less likely to stray from home or a less attractive target for theft. Please contact your veterinarian.
If you happen to see a dead or wounded dog or animal on the highway, notify the State Highway Patrol.
