Tips for Finding a Lost Pet
- Contact Local Animal Shelters And Animal Control Agencies. File a lost pet report with every shelter within a 60 mile radius of your home. Provide them with an accurate description of your pet and a recent photograph. Dogs can travel 1 mile in an hour. 
- Search The Neighborhood. Visit places that you normally walk your dog. Walk or drive through several times a day. Bring a squeaky toy they are familiar with. Ask neighbors, letter carriers, delivery people if they have seen your pet. 
- Do Not Rely Solely On A Microchip. There is not a standard universal microchip scanner. Each company that makes them can only read certain microchips.
- Advertise. Post notices in your neighborhood, grocery stores, veterinary offices, traffic. Each company that makes them can only read certain microchips. 
- Be Wary Of Pet Recovery Scams. When talking to a stranger who claims to have found your pet, ask them to describe the pet thoroughly before you offer any information. If he does not include the identifying characteristics you left out of the advertisement, he may not really have your pet. Be particularly wary of people who insist that you give or wire them money for the return of your pet. 
- If You Recently Moved, you may want to check your old neighborhood.
- Use Clothing. Put an old shirt or something that has your scent in the yard or on the porch.
- Use A Litter Box. Put your cats soiled litter box in the yard or on the porch. This will be a familiar scent to them.
- Garages. Ask your neighbors to check their garages. Cats are most famous for running in them to hide.
- Don’t Give Up On Your Search. Animals who have been lost for months have been reunited with their owners.
