Searching for a lost pet
Searching for a lost pet can be a stressful situation. We hope the tips and sources below are helpful to your search.
- Visit EVERY shelter. Act fast and check each shelter daily. Many pets are found farther than 10 miles from where they were lost.
- Personally look for your pet – the description you give over the phone may not match someone else’s description of your pet.
- Immediately contact the organization where you licensed your pet and verify that your phone number and address are up to date in their records.
- Contact your microchip company immediately and verify that your phone number and address are up to date in their records.
- Leave a lost pet report and current photo at all shelters you visit.
- If your pet has been missing for more than five days, check lists of adoptable pets at local shelters.
- Notify friends and neighbors that your pet is lost.
- Contact veterinary practices in your area to see if anyone has brought in a lost or injured pet.
- Check websites like Craigslist.org, Fidofinder.com, Petharbor.com, Nextdoor.com, 911parrotalert.com, Pawboost.com, and the Colorado Pets Lost and Found Facebook page.
- Learn how to register your lost pet on Petharbor.com.
- Post flyers within a three-mile radius of where you lost your pet.
