Hello, I'm really sorry you lost your pet. I am a volunteer for Save the Pets, a non-profit organization that helps lost and found pets find their homes. I hope your pet was microchipped because that will make it easier.
Here is some information that may help you find your pet. Please check www.found-pets.org. Post signs everywhere! Many times a lost pet is within a mile of the owner's home, generally in the care of a well-meaning neighbor. Put note cards on every door. You can also put in a lost report at the Humane Society at 327-6088, ext. 111. You want to do these things immediately -- time is of the essence. Most importantly, you need to ~personally~ check PACC on Silverbell road AT LEAST EVERY OTHER DAY. They only keep found dogs & cats 3 days before they go up for adoption and possibly go on the euthanasia list. Sometimes the pets don't even get that long, so please check PACC. So many found pets are in there, that it is impossible for anyone but the owner to find the right one.
Here's a few FREE Lost & Found pet sites to go on to report & search for any lost or found pets:
www.fidofinder.com (for dogs)
www.tabbytracker.com (for cats)
www.birdhotline.com (for birds)
www.tarafoundation.com/lost&found.html (for birds)
Save the Pets also emails out a "last day list" each morning with pictures of the pets due to be euthanized at PACC, we ask the people on the email distribution list to post it just once a day. If you would like to be added to this distribution list it will give you the advantage to see if your pet ever appears on this dreaded list and save your pet before it's too late. This would also help increase the awareness of the available pets who so desperately need saving. Please let me know if you would like to be added to the distribution. You never know.
If you need any other information please e-mail me at SaveThePets@Ymail.com. Good luck!
