What to do if your pet is lost:

Visit ALL local animal shelters at least every third day. (Telephone personnel CANNOT tell if your pet has arrived unless it is wearing identification). 

At the shelter:
Check all kennels.
File a lost report at the Madison County Animal Shelter and all veterinarians in the county.


Check the Lost and Found ads in local newspapers (daily). 

Advertise your lost pet in the local newspapers (if offering a reward, we suggest that you NOT state the amount in the ad). 

Canvas your neighborhood. Sometimes offering even a small reward to neighborhood youngsters will result in a very diligent search. 

Check with your postal and newspaper carriers. 

Distribute fliers (with a picture of your animal if possible). 

If your pet is wearing an ID tag from another jurisdiction, vet office, or residence, contact that agency and update your address and phone number. (Pets with ID tags have been traced from places as remote as Guam!) 

DO NOT GIVE UP - KEEP CHECKING

WHEN YOUR PET COMES HOME, MAKE SURE THAT YOU PURCHASE An IDENTAFICATION TAG AND THAT YOUR PET WEARS IT AT ALL TIMES.

REMEMBER, A TAG IS YOUR PET'S BEST CHANCE TO BE REUNITED WITH YOU.

CONSIDER HAVING YOUR PET MICROCHIPPED.
