Saving One Life at a Time
Notify neighbors and search areas thoroughly, especially in the evening as many pets become frightened and hide in the daytime. Door-to-door canvassing may provide leads as well. Always be sure leave your phone number and address. A
Look for identification. A name/identification tag can lead you directly to the owner. Rabies tags and shelter tags also have traceable numbers. If there are no identification tags, consider taking the animal to a vet or shelter that has a microchip scanner, to check for an implanted microchip.
