2. Visit Local SheltersYour pet might have been rescued by a kind Samaritan and taken to a local shelter. Make sure you visit local shelters in your area and file a lost pet report so if they rescue him/her they can easily return him/her to you. Be sure to bring a photo of your pet! Print several copies and flyers.
3. Post OnlineThe first option is still plausible but in these days, the internet is easier and the faster way to get the word out there about your missing pet. There are many websites dedicated to find lost pets. Here are some we recommend:
- Craiglist: You can post your ad for free in the Craigslist website for your city.
- Local Facebook Groups: This one is one of the most recommended options. People spend a lot of time on Facebook and they are many local Facebook Groups that help find missing pets. We can recommend https://www.facebook.com/missingpetsusa
- Fido Finder: Here you can create a profile and post your missing dog or if you found a dog post the information there to help find the owner. They are available in USA, Canada and UK.
