How do I find a lost pet in my area? Walk or drive through your neighborhood and post flyers in surrounding areas. Ask neighbors, letter carriers, and delivery drivers if they have seen your pet. According to an ASPCA survey, about half of missing dogs and a third of missing cats were found by searching their local neighborhoods.
What do you do when you lost your pet? Check with local neighborhood groups on Nextdoor or Facebook. Use your pet’s photo to make “lost pet” signs. Put them up in your neighborhood and in post offices, libraries, pet supply stores, veterinary offices and grocery stores. Inform your veterinarian and groomer that your pet is lost in case they receive a call.
