LOST AND FOUND PETS
As soon as you can, hang signs with a large photo of your pet in the area she was lost. Include phone number(s) and any reward.
Cats are typically hiding only a few houses away. Dogs often travel much farther. Dogs who are walked typically can find their way home. Dogs who are in unfamiliar territory or are not used to being outside their yard may have a harder time finding their way home.
Drive around the neighborhood calling your dog, bringing along a favorite toy, family member or pet, and/or treats.
Email or text your neighbors. Post on Facebook, in neighborhood Facebook group(s), and in NextDoor.
Make sure your pet’s microchip is up to date. Have you moved? Changed your phone number or email address? Did you register your microchip? If you haven’t registered it, find the paperwork or call the shelter, clinic, vet, or rescue where your pet was microchipped. They may be able to help tell you which company made your pet’s chip and your pet’s chip number.
Steps to find a lost pet from San Antonio’s Animal Care Services (ACS) From their website “Please include Animal Care Services in your search for your pet. It is always recommended that you walk through the kennels in the facility to assure your pet is not here. Don’t walk through the shelter just once; it is recommended you walk through at least every other day.”
We are happy to share lost King William and Lavaca pets information and photos on The Cannoli Fund Facebook page.
If you’ve found a dog or cat in our King William or Lavaca service area, or you live in this area, we have a microchip scanner.
