WHAT TO DO IF YOU HAVE LOST A PET

 

  • Search the immediate area where your pet was last seen and check with your neighbors.
  • If your pet is microchipped, call the microchip company to make a report and to ensure your contact information is up-to-date.
  •  Place your pet’s bed, clothing, or a blanket with your scent on it outside in the area where the pet was last seen. For missing cats, you can also put the litterbox outside. These things are familiar to your pet and may encourage him to return to the area.   
  • Make a lost pet report with local pet agencies/businesses:
    • Independence Animal Services - 816-325-7205 or email lostpets@indepmo.org
    • PawBoost
    • Lost Pet Registry KC – 816-812-1032
  •  Post notices on local social media sites suchasFacebookandNextdoor
  • Create a flyer to post in the neighborhood where the pet was found and distribute to local vet clinics and shelters.Visit local shelters immediately to drop off a lost pet flyer.
  • Visit shelters every few days and view online listings of stray animals daily to see if your pet is brought in.
