Dog Missing, Here is What You Should Do.
When your family dog or cat goes missing from home, it will be a traumatic experience for both all of you. Below are some tips that will increase the chances of your pet being found..
Firstly, contact local animal shelters and animal rescue organisations.
You can file a lost pet report with all shelters in a 60-mile radius of your home and call in at the nearest shelters daily, if at all possible.
Your local shelter, should be listed online or check a phone directory if you have one. If there is no shelter in your community then contact the local police department. Give these agencies an accurate description and a recent photo of the missing pet. Always inform the police if you think your pet was stolen.
Search the neighbourhood.
Walk or drive through your neighbourhood several times every day. Ask all neighbours, posties and delivery people if they have seen your missing pet. Hand out a recent photograph of your pet and information on how you can be contacted with any information which may help.
Post notices at grocery stores, community centers, vets, newsagents, pet shops and other suitable locations. Also, put an advert in newspapers and inform local radio stations. State your pet’s sex, age, weight, breed, colour and any special markings. When describing your pet, leave out just one identifying characteristic and ask the person who finds your pet to describe it.

Post on social media and any other lost and found websites.
