Lost & Found Pets

 

 

 

If You've Lost Your Pet

 

  • Search your own neighborhood, thoroughly.

  • Post on PAWBOOST.COM

  • Stop by or call the Cumberland County Animal Shelter to see if your pet has been impounded. Call all other humane societies, animal control agencies and protection organizations.

  • Place a classified ad in the Lost & Found section in the paper -- it's FREE (call 910-678-9000 or 1-800-345-9895)! Remember, when placing the ad to leave out one identifying aspect of your pet, so that you will know for sure when someone calls if it is legitimate.

  • Place posters in your neighborhood, local shopping center, churches, veterinarian offices, grocery stores, community centers, etc.

  • DO NOT despair, or lose hope...go to your local animal shelter daily. Many times an animal that has been found will not be taken to a shelter right away...so keep checking at your local shelters.

  • DO NOT let weeks go by before looking for your pet. It is your responsibility to look for your pet.

If You've Found a Pet

Here are a few things you can do:

  • Call the Cumberland County Animal Shelter at 321-6852 to find out if the animal has been reported as missing. You will be given the name and telephone number of the possible owner.

  • If the animal has a rabies tag, call the veterinarian on the tag. They will be able to identify the animal through their records.

  • Place a classified ad in the Lost & Found in the paper -- it's FREE (call 910-678-9000 or 1-800-345-9895)! Remember, when placing the ad to leave out one identifying aspect of the animal, so that you can help determine legitimate calls.    

  • Place posters in your neighborhood, local shopping center, churches, veterinarian offices, grocery stores, community centers, other rescue organizations, etc.

  • Check with neighbors to see if they have lost or know of anyone who has lost a pet. Do not describe all aspects of the animal, just give the basics. When a possible owner calls have them give you more identifying aspects of the animal (his/her name, any markings that are unique, etc.), that way you will be sure that the animal actually belongs to them.
