1. Contact your local police department.

2. Look in your local newspaper under "found" animal ads.


3. Place a "LOST" ad in your local newspaper.


4. Check your local animal shelters. Visiting the shelter in person is better than calling. You know your animal better than anyone. Descriptions are not always sufficient for a stranger to recognize your animal. Check the shelter every 3 days for several weeks to insure that your animal is not euthanized in a shelter. Shelter employees can not be held responsible for calling to let you know an animal that fits your animal's description has shown up. They are very busy and see hundreds of animals everyday.

They are open 365 days per year and will accept strays from other areas of the county when the other shelters are closed. It is always a good idea to check with the SPCA if you have lost a pet.)

Santa Cruz Animal Services Authority (receives animals found within Santa Cruz County.)

5. Place "LOST" posters with a recent photo of your animal all over town. Use lots of BIG LETTERS and BIG NUMBERS


6. Check with the Emergency Vet Clinic. Animals that are injured on week-ends or evenings may end up in an emergency clinic. You may also contact other local vets in your vicinity to see if an unidentified injured animal was brought in.


7. Visit, a popular national website with a free classified ad section for posting lost and found animals.


8. Prevention: Help your animal find his/her way back to you in the future! Be sure your animal wears a collar and ID tag at all times with your phone number and address. Ask your vet about microchipping your animal (a tiny scannable chip injected under the skin encoded with your contact information), keep your animal inside the house or in a secure, fenced yard when you are not around.

I must express some appreciation to this writer for rescuing me from this particular incident. As a result of surfing through the online world and coming across recommendations which were not powerful, I was thinking my entire life was done. Being alive devoid of the approaches to the problems you've sorted out all through your good blog post is a critical case, as well as the kind which could have in a negative way affected my entire career if I hadn't noticed your blog. That skills and kindness in handling everything was important. I'm not sure what I would've done if I hadn't discovered such a thing like this. I can at this time look ahead to my future. Thanks for your time very much for your expert and amazing help. I will not hesitate to refer your web site to anybody who needs to have guidance about this topic.

I intended to compose you one very little note to help thank you very much as before considering the striking opinions you've discussed on this page. It was certainly surprisingly generous of people like you to provide openly just what a number of people would have sold as an e-book to end up making some dough on their own, certainly considering that you could possibly have done it in the event you desired. The tricks as well acted as a great way to realize that many people have the same fervor the same as my own to know very much more around this issue. I know there are millions of more pleasant opportunities up front for many who read your site.
