Lost & Found

Lost & Found Guide

Photograph

Take a photo of the found pet or prepare an electronic jpg of the lost pet.

Phone Vets & Check For Microchipping

Call as many vets in CT, especially vets in the area where the animal was lost / found (see table 2 below) to report (and send photos). Take found animal in to nearest vet to check for microchip.

Return To Area

Attach 5mtr washing line or rope (short lead does not work) and take dog to the spot where it was found. It may be able to lead you to its home. If you have moved house and your pet has disappeared from the new home, return to the old house to see if it has made an “incredible journey” home.

Posters

Put up posters with a photograph in all vets and pet shops around the area. If the dog had no collar or microchip or has signs of having been bred, chances are it wasn’t from a good home. Be discerning when owners come forward, and if you suspect mistreatment, contact the SPCA and they can inspect the property. If they believe the dog was mistreated, they will officially confiscate it and you can work with them to rehome the dog responsibly.
