AFTER A DISASTER: WHAT TO DO IF YOUR PET IS LOST.


1. Visit each shelter in your area once every other day. Take a current photo of your animal with you.

2. Create a flyer with your pet’s photo and full description; your pet’s name, your name and contact information. Post it in adjoining neighborhoods as well as your own.

3. Post a photo and description of your animal, along with your contact information, on social media sites such as Facebook and Nextdoor.

4. Post flyers in veterinary offices and pet stores.

5. Continue to search. It’s not uncommon for people to be reunited with their pets weeks, or even months, after they’re lost.
