Why isn't my pet at the Shelter, now what?
Leave a detailed description and/or a picture of your pet with the local municiple shelter and check back daily. The shelter staff does their best to match up lost pets with their owners, but if the pet has been missing for quite some time, was found a great distance from where he/she was originally lost, or does not have any distinguishable markings, they may not be easily recognized as your missing pet.
Get out the word as much as you can, to as many people as you can, in any way possible. Post a picture and your pet’s information on Facebook and on the Lost & Found Pets and Personal Items page. Put up posters in your neighborhood and ask neighbors to keep an eye out for your pet. Contact your veterinarian to let them know that your pet is missing.
