If your pet bolted last night during the July 4th fireworks, here are some tips to help you in your search. I will add in my own tip and hopefully other people will contribute more suggestions in the comments.
- Visit every shelter that accepts “stray” pets in your area. When you get there, ask to see every dog (or cat) in the place. If they have certain animals housed in areas that are off-limits, ask to see photos of every one of the pets in those areas. Keep in mind that your pet may be injured and possibly being kept in the shelter’s vet clinic or at an offsite clinic. Ask if they have any other pets housed offsite and to view photos of all those animals. Ask to fill out a Lost Pet report. Ask to review any Found Pet reports the facility has taken since the time your pet was lost.
