LOST PETS
Finding A Lost Pet


Losing a pet is akin to losing a child. If this happens to you and your pet, you must take immediate action. We bring you some tips on how to weave a pet detecting campaign and enhance the chances of recovering your pet.
  • Place an ad in your city and local newspapers describing your lost pet and give your contact details.

  • If you live in a campus or a township, put up posters about your lost pet on the community notice board or at a place where everyone is likely to read it.

  • Create flyers and get the permission to post them in and around your neighbourhood, at the local veterinary offices, grocery stores, shopping areas or school bulletin boards.

  • If the above measures do not work, call the local FM radio stations and get the news of your lost pet on-air.

  • Inform the local shelters and city shelters about your lost pet with a complete description and other details. Call them daily and visit if possible for any progress.

  • Ask the regular delivery people in your area if they have seen your pet, everyone from the milkman to the newspaper boy to your watchman. They are the people who are most likely to have spotted your pet.

  • You never know where you might find your baby. Look in unusual or unused places around your home, including outside ditches and car parks.

  • The most important measure to take is a preventative measure: always keep current identification on your pet. Write the address on his collar or paste a sticker with the details on the collar.

  • Another preventive measure to take is to never walk your dog without a leash in unfenced areas if you know that your pet is in a habit of running away on an impulse. Playing with your dog in a fenced park or a gated lawn is safe but as far as possible, avoid letting him or her free in large open grounds, where he may get tempted to chase something or someone and in the process get lost.

    HAVE YOU EXPERIENCED THE DEMISE OF A PET NAME?

    If it hasn’t happened to you yet, the demise of a pet is one eventuality no pet owner can escape. Therefore it is better to be prepared for it and if you have already been a victim to such a loss, here is how you can equip yourself to deal with the pain better, next time round.

    • Acknowledge your grief; give yourself a chance to express it. Speak about it to your friends, family and other animal lovers who will understand.
    • Pen down your thoughts. This is good form of release.
    • Prepare a memorial for your pet, there is nothing more gratifying that this.
    • Don’t be in a rush to get a replacement for your pet as it isn’t fair to you or your new pet. A bonny new puppy can’t replace your lovable mongrel of many years. When you are ready, a good place to find your new pet in an animal shelter which houses many beautiful animals in need of a home.
