Lost and Found Pet Resources

As much as it pains us to think about losing a beloved pet, sometimes the unthinkable will occur.  Whether your pet slips it’s lead and runs off, someone leaves the door open, or someone forgets to shut a gate, it still results in a member of the family missing.

With the surge in social media, it is now possible to pass information to a large number of people in a relatively short period of time.  The quicker information can be posted, the less distance the pet will have traveled and the greater the chance of being reunited quickly. 

We have compiled a list of resources* to assist you in spreading information about your missing pet or a pet you may have found.  Feel free to post your relevant information on any of these sites.

Are you prepared to safely evacuate your pets in case of an emergency?  There are simple steps pet owners can take to prepare for disaster:

1. Get a Kit
Make an emergency kit for your animals that can be placed alongside your family's disaster go kit. A pet's go kit should include these basic items (at a minimum):

     1. Food, water and medicines for five days. Those vacuum food sealers would be great to keep food fresh and dry, canned food is also a good choice.
     2. Medical and veterinary records
     3. Carriers, toys, blanket or bed. In a dire emergency, a pillowcase makes a great cat carrier and you can transport several cats at one time till better              carrier is found.
     4. Litter box and litter
     5. ID attached to your pet - MICROCHIP IS BEST
     6. Pet carrier and/or leash or harness
     7. Current photos of pet with physical description

2. Make a Plan
The kit is a good start; however, without a plan covering what to do should a disaster or emergency occur, it may just gather dust. Pet owners should keep the following planning points in mind:

     Identify a safe place before an emergency ever happens by doing a little research into pet-friendly hotels outside the local area and talking with family out side the local area about staying with them. This is a great time for pet owners to get to know their neighbors. If they are away at work, a trusted neighbor can evacuate pets and bring emergency kits to a pre-arranged location. Often times, a crisis will occur when someone is at work or running errands.

     It is critical that pets wear visible identification at all the times. The ID tag should include a cell phone number and perhaps an out-of-area contact phone number. Microchips are a great form of permanent identification that will back up an ID tag. Also get a pet ID card that contains a photo of your pet as well as vaccination information.

Using the planning tools offered by organizations such as the American Red Cross, pet owners can easily augment with information they need to ensure their pets will be safe.
