  • Please be sure to check your SPAM folder or add this address to your contacts and whitelist if needed.

    Your information has automatically been loaded into our flyer generator.

    You can download and/or print your flyer now, choose a template and make changes if you like.

  • Example Flyers:

  • Check license, ID, or rabies tag. To find out the name of the owner, contact your local police department. Local police departments often handle these records or they can tell you who does.

  • Check for a microchip. Local animal control agencies and almost all shelters and veterinary offices have the necessary equipment to scan for a microchip. This is usually a free service.

  • Search and post on sites such as Craigslist.com or Nextdoor.com.

  • Check other lost and found websites (See our page Other Online Resources).

  • Notify animal control, vet offices, dog shelters, and humane societies. Petfinder has a comprehensive list of shelters and rescue organizations searchable by location here: https://www.petfinder.com/animal-shelters-and-rescues/search/

  • If your pet is microchipped, contact the microchip company.
