Placer County, CA - Reuniting Lost Pets With Their Owners

There are two most commonly used proactive methods of helping reunite lost pets with their owners:

  1. ID Tags - You can order custom pet identification tags with your name and number on the front and a QR code that calls your number on the back. Groupon is offering a special deal (that ends on Monday, 4/9/12): $15 for 2 custom pet identification tags, including shipping - if you click on this link to purchase this deal, you'll earn me a Groupon credit! :)
     
     
  2. Microchip - AVID and HomeAgain provide microchips for your pet. Animal shelters have microchip readers that they scan lost pets with, to see if they can track down the owner's contact information. One thing to keep in mind is that owners need to make sure their info is current and that there are fees to maintain and update the info in the microchip databases.
However, once your pet is lost, here three things you should do to help you find your pet:
  1. Flyers - Be sure you have a recent photo of your pet, just in case you ever need to make "Lost Pet" flyers one day...and don't forget to include a QR code that calls your number. Posting signs around the neighborhood will also alert the neighbors to be on the lookout.
     
  2. Social Media - Post lost pet's info on Twitter.com (be sure to include a pic), Facebook.com (be sure to make it a public post), Petfinder.comPetharbor.com and Craigslist.org.
     
  3. Shelters & Vets - Visit your local shelters and veterinarians and post your lost pet flyer on their bulletin boards.

Definitely, Tammy...and it makes it easy if you only have one phone number (like Bob and I) who haven't had a landline in years! :)

Tammy~first of all, those dogs are GLORIOUS!  The fella at the end leaning into you looks so delightfully SERIOUS. (He appreciates his role, you can tell.) I love those faces...all of them.

Okay, that being said, this is an EXCELLENT post, pack ful of info. I have to bookmark this for use with my own clients.  Thank you!

Thank you, Gayle! That's my 8-year old baby boy Cyrano I'm snuggling up with in the pic...and he's had that serious look since he was a young pup. Glad you liked the content of my post! :)
