Other

  • Place your bedding outside. The scent is a strong attractant for an animal.
  • Make a large sign and put it in your front yard. Sometimes when people find a pet they drive around the neighborhood to find the pet’s home.
  • Ask to search your neighbor’s yards. Look under homes and bushes and in drainage areas.
  • If your dog is timid towards strangers, be sure to include special words you may use that will help someone catch the pet before they run off again.
  • Expand your search for miles away, not just close to home.
  • Search around water sources. Pets need water.
  • For Cats: Sprinkle your cat’s used kitty litter around your house. The scent of “themselves” will attract them back home.
