LOST: REPORT & SEARCH

​Report your lost animal to the following establishments immediately:

ANIMAL CONTROL

FCAHS

TIMES HERALD

KXJK/KBFC

GEHRING ANIMAL CLINIC

ROUNTREE ANIMAL CLINIC

Here are some helpful tips when searching for your lost pet:

  • POST "LOST" POSTERS. Alert the public with posters in local businesses, animal clinics, high-traffic areas & FCAHS.

  • TALK TO YOUR NEIGHBORS. If your pet went missing from your house or yard, the place to begin your search is in your immediate neighborhood. If you live near a busy street check there first; assure yourself that your pet has not wandered into traffic and been injured or worse. Walk around the area surrounding your home and talk to your neighbors – the mailman, children playing outside, construction workers. If you have a recent picture, take it with you on your search. Leave your phone number and a description of your pet.

  • TAKE YOUR PET'S FAVORITE TOY. Dogs and cats have hearing superior to ours and may be able to hear you from a great distance. If your pet has a favorite toy with a squeaker, bell, or any other noise maker, you can use it to your advantage. While you're calling out your pet's name, squeak or jingle the toy.

  • SEARCH WHEN AREA IS QUIET. Searching your neighborhood during quieter hours can be a great help in finding your pet. Call your pet's name and then listen for his familiar bark.

  • USE YOUR CAR. If your walk does not produce any information go back and get your car. Dogs recognize the sound of their master's car.
