It’s not expensive to have your dog or cat microchipped at a clinic. Local newspapers often promote free ‘chipping’ events, and most shelters charge under twenty dollars for the service.
If your pet is missing, here are the steps you should take to bring him or her home:
1. Drive around in your car or walk on foot, calling your pet’s name.
2. Advertise on social media and include a picture.
3. Call your local shelters; someone may have turned her in.
4. Place signs in public access areas. Include description, your phone number, and a picture. (When your pet is returned, please take the signs down!)
5. Knock on doors nearby and leave a flyer with a picture and phone number included.
After you’ve done all these things and Fido or Tabby are still missing, repeat number 1 and don’t give up hope. It’s likely she will return on her own.
If you have questions about this or any other dog-related question, please call me at 856.981.8957. I will try to help you.
