Millions of people across the United States are proud owners of one or more pet. Pets are truly beloved members of family units. When you have a pet, they provide so many different things for you. They provide emotional support, companionship, security and so much more. Knowing all of this, it is no surprise that when pets go missing it can be extremely traumatic. Many people find themselves in panic mode when their pet is missing. Today Advanced Private Investigator & Security of Miami, FL has some tips for you on what to do if you find yourself with a missing pet.
Search for Missing Pet
The first thing that you want to do is clear your schedule as much as possible so that you can start searching for your lost pet. If you can take some time off work for the day that would be helpful. Ask a friend of neighbor to watch any little children that you may have so that you do not have to worry about watching your kids while you are searching. You can also ask friends or family members if they can take some time to help you look as well.
Lost Pet Flyer, Poster & More
Next you will want to get the word out about your missing pet. There are a few helpful ways that you can do this. First find the best picture that you have of your pet. Write a description of the pet, including their name, and how to get ahold of you if they find your pet. Text this out to your friends and neighbors. You will also want to post it on social media. Ask your friends to share this information with anyone that they can. Many communities have groups on social media for lost pets. See if you can find a few and post your lost pet in these groups as well. You can also make and print flyers and put them up in your neighborhood and surrounding neighborhoods as well.
Lost Dog or Cat Alert Phone Calls
Once you have gotten all of this information out there you will need to make sure that you are have your phone with you and that it stays charged. You would hate for someone to call or text you with information and not see it because your phone is not with you. You may want to change the message on your voicemail with information about your pet and a request for people to leave a detailed message with their contact information if they have found your pet or have any information about them.
Check Animal Shelters & Vets for Missing Pets
Many people immediately take lost pets to the vet or animal shelter to see if they have been chipped. Call all of the local animal shelters and vets to see if they have seen your pet. You should be able to email or text them the information that you have about your pet along with a picture.
