Lost & Found
If you have FOUND a pet, we recommend you do the following:
Check with neighbors to see if they are missing a pet. So many times pets merely wonder a few doors down, so you can help get a pet home as quickly as possible by knocking on a few doors.
Check for tags/identification. If the pet has ID, contact the family to alert them their pet is in your possession.
If the pet has no ID, take the pet to a local veterinarian or bring it to us at the PAWS Humane Center to be scanned for a microchip.
Always report a found pet to PAWS and other area shelters Animals missing from Dearborn County may easily cross county lines or be picked up by someone passing through the area.
Other local shelters:
Check Eagle Radio Pet Patrol (above link) and check the “lost” ads in the newspapers.
Post the found pet’s photo and information on your facebook, PAWS Facebook, twitter and other social media page.
If you have LOST a pet, we recommend you do the following:
Hurry! Don’t Delay in looking for your lost pet.
It’s important for you to call the PAWS Humane Center right away and visit in person.
Remember to check back daily as we take in animals each and every day. One of them may be yours.
Visit all the local animal shelters to look for your pet because animals can wander far from home. Animals missing from Dearborn County may easily cross county lines or be picked up by someone passing through the area.
Notify friends and neighbors that your pet is lost. Post fliers in the area where you lost your pet.
Contact veterinary practices in your area. They may have a Lost and Found bulletin board in their offices.
Check Eagle Radio Pet Patrol .Read the “found” ads, and take out a “lost” ad in the newspapers.
Post your pet’s photo and information on your facebook, PAWS Facebook, twitter and other social media pages
And finally:When your pet comes home, have them Microchipped. PAWS Humane Center offers microchipping for $25.00 per pet.
Make sure your pet wears a current county license tag (for dogs), rabies tag and an ID tag with your present address and phone numbers. – and your address and phone numbers are on file with the veterinarian who provided your pet’s most recent vaccinations.
