Do you know what to do when
you find a lost pet?  Taking the right
action can help return the pet to his or her owner!  Here are a few steps to take if you find a pet that looks lost.
Lost Pet Tips:
  • Approach Carefully – Always use
    caution when approaching an unfamiliar pet.
    They may be frightened or injured. 
    If the pet is afraid, they may behave unpredictably. 
  • Check Tags – After you approach the
    pet, you should first check for tags.
    This will help you identify the owner. 
    Your local animal control office can provide you with information on how

    doesn’t have visible tags, take the pet to our office or to a local

    microchip that is matched to the owner’s contact information.
  • Work with a Shelter or Animal Control

    owner, as they are the first place many pet owners come to look for a missing
