Tips for Finding a Lost Pet

  1. Contact animal agencies: Our number is 440-885-8014.
  2. Search the Neighborhood: Walk or drive through your neighborhood several times every day–show a picture, if you have one. Early morning and sunset are prime times for finding lost pets. Put a sign in your front yard with a lost pet poster from Pawboost.com!8
  3. Use the power of SCENT! Place a recently worn article of clothing in your yard; for cats that usually stay indoors, place their litter box outside. Familiar scents can bring them home!
  4. ADVERTISE: Post fliers in all public places – grocery stores, community centers, churches, etc. Place an ad in the classified section of your local paper. Offer a reward if possible. Caution: to protect yourself from pet recovery scams, leave out one of your pets identifying characteristics so you can verify the honesty of any caller who claims to have found your pet.
  5. Notify others: Call your local vet clinics. Your pet may have been injured!
  6. File a Report: If you believe your pet has been stolen, notify police.
  7. Don’t Give Up! We’ve re-united owners with their pets MONTHS after they found their way to our Shelter! It’s important to keep checking the Shelters daily.
  8. And the next time: Protect your pet from getting lost again. Microchip your pet (all animals from Parma Animal Shelter are microchipped prior to adoption!)  ALWAYS keep a collar with an ID tag on your pet. An ID tag is your lost pet’s ticket HOME. License your pet, as local law requires https://cuyahogadogs.com/en-US/Dog-License-Portal.aspx. Finally, keep a picture of your pet on file in the event he or she strays again with FindingRover.com!
