LOST AND FOUND INFORMATION
Here are a list of tips, suggestions and websites that was put together for lost/found pets. Please be sure to read this in its entirety to help give yourself a better chance at either being reunited with your lost pet or helping to reunite the pet you found with its family. Please note that Yorkie911 Rescue (nor the person who put this info together) have no affiliation with any of these websites or groups; we are just caring people that know the pain of having a pet go missing or wanting it reunited with its owners.
Create a poster/flyer with the following information:
Make sure all the above information is colorful & stands out so that it can be seen from a distance. It's also a good idea to put your flyers in some sort of plastic protection so that the ink doesn't run during wet weather.
Post your flyers in all your local:
Make sure you ask permission before posting your flyers. Most places will have a bulletin board that you can use or will give you permission to post your flyer on their window or door. The above list is just a list of suggested places. Post your flyers anywhere you think gets a lot of foot traffic in your area. Remember that someone who doesn't have a pet of their own could find your pet, so you don't want to just post in pet stores. It's best to cover all types of people. At some point, everyone will go to a grocery store or gas station.
Call all of the the following places in your area. Ask if you can snail-mail or drop off a missing pet flyer (in color) and to whom you should address it to.
If your pet is microchipped, be sure to notify the chip company right away:
Be sure to list your lost/found pet on all these websites (listed in no particular order):
These are other resources you can use:
Join Yahoo Groups specifically created for lost/found pets:
I would highly recommend joining these Yahoo Groups as well. Once you're a member, you can send a post to all the members within this group of your missing pet. There are rescuers on these lists from all over the country that can help keep an eye out for your pet. A lot of people on these lists are also cross-posters, meaning they will receive your post and send it on to their rescue contacts, who will then send it onto their contacts. Word can travel very fast through the rescue community online with the help of Yahoo Groups.
