Lost and Found Pets

 

Two great resources with step-by-step tips on what you should do if you find or lose a pet are: Lost Found Checklist or Cat Connection Lost Pet Tips

Check both the lost and found pet sections daily on all the sites as new listings are posted constantly.

If you’ve found a pet, contact vets in the area. The lost/found dog or cat may belong to one of their patients. If your pet is microchipped, contact the microchip company to make sure they have your current contact info.

Post Lost/Found flyers in the neighborhood where lost or found. Talk to anyone you see on the street or in their yards. Don’t underestimate what people may have seen while walking/driving around the neighborhood. Many pets are found just by talking to neighbors.

Check Animal Care Services daily as the city only holds stray animals for 3 days: http://www.sanantonio.gov/animalcare/lostandfound.asp
