Lost and Found
They run so fast and so far that they when they do stop, they realize that they don't know where they are or how to get home. It is a very scary thing.
Meanwhile, back at their home, their humans find that they are missing and they get scared too!
If your humans find that you are missing, there are things that they should do to help you get back home quickly and safely.
They should contact shelters and vet offices. Not just ones in your town since you could have run very far. They should give a really good description and get them photos so they can be on the look out for you.
They should call daily to see if you have been found.
As soon as they see you are missing, they should start searching your neighborhood. Let all your neighbors know you are missing and ask them to check around their houses. Pets look for places to hide and garages, sheds and under porches look like good places.
They should make up flyers with your photo, description and a phone number so they can call your humans if they see you. Places like grocery stores, community centers, and pet stores are good places to post the flyers.
Contact local internet services. In our area Granite State Dog Rescue and Above the Notch Humane Society will post your photo and ask peoples to look for you.
Your chances of being returned to your family are better if you are wearing your collar with up to date rabies tags and town license. Your Vet and the town peoples know how to find your family real fast.
Micro chips are also a really good idea. Any body who finds you can bring you to any Vet and they can use a magic wand to read your chip. They can contact the chip company who will have the name and address of your family. (make sure your humans keep this information updated)
The most important thing for you and your humans to remember is never give up looking. It could take a very long time but with luck you and your humans will find each other and be a family again.
I hope you never get lost but if you do, I hope you get found real fast.
