WHAT TO DO IF YOU’VE LOST A PET:
The loss of a beloved companion is often a scary and frightening event; many owners do not even know where to start their search. Often, owners never even think of looking at their local animal shelter. In fact, according to the ASPCA, nationally less than two percent of stray cats and only 15-20% of stray dogs at animal shelters are reclaimed by their owners. Of those animals that were reclaimed by their owners, many were microchipped or were wearing an ID tag, enabling the shelter to contact the owner.
If your animal ever goes missing, the following simple steps will help you find your best friend.
- Start the search for the lost pet as soon as you notice it is missing. The longer you wait, the less likely it is that you will find your animal.
- Check at the Cheyenne Animal Shelter. If it is after hours, give our After Hours Lost & Found Hotline a call at (307) 214-5779. The following day, make sure to come out and look as soon as the shelter opens. If your animal is not at the shelter, we will have you fill out a lost card, please bring a photo of your lost pet with you so that we may attach it to the lost card. We recommend that you check our shelter at least every other day. We often receive between 20-40 animals a day and typically have 200 animals in the lost files. We try our best to help owners find their lost pets, but owners are the best at identifying their own animals. If you find your pet, please call us at 307-632-6655!
- Contact the classified section of the newspaper. Both the Tribune Eagle (307-633-9985) and Traders (307-634-8895) will run lost and found ads for free for a limited period of time. Make sure that you look in the paper for found ads, too. Perhaps someone has already found your pet.
- Displaying posters around the area where you lost your pet is a great way to find your missing friend. Make sure to use bold letters that can be by drivers, also include the type and breed of animal, whether it is a male or female, an adult or baby, and a name and number where you can always be reached. Often, offering a small reward, like $10 is a great way to get every neighborhood child on the lookout. Also, have a picture of the lost pet on your poster. Bring your lost pet poster to local veterinary offices and to the shelter.
- Local radio stations can also help you find your lost animal.
- You can also use social media, Click here to use Cheyenne Animal Shelters After Hours Lost & Found Facebook Group
