Finding Your Lost Pet
If you have lost your pet, please consider the following options:
1. Call your local county animal shelter immediately, report your pet as lost and give an accurate description of your pet.
2. Search the neighborhood thoroughly. Enlist the help of friends. Post the lost pet to any neighborhood Facebook groups, Cincinnati Lost and Found Pets
or to PawBoost Lost and Found Pets (this will send an alert to all area veterinarian offices and utilizes social media to get the word out about your pet).
3. Go to the animal shelter and look for yourself. Only you know your pet. Take pictures if you can to show others what your pet looks like.
4. Post signs in your neighborhood and local stores. Describe your pet and put a picture of it on the sign if possible. Leave your phone number, too, so people can call you if they find your pet.
5. Place an ad in the newspaper. The more people who know your pet is missing, the better chance you have of finding it.
6. Keep checking at your local shelter and other shelters in the area. Call or visit at least every three days.
Microchipped animals can be identified at any Animal Shelter or local veterinarian’s office. You are also welcome to bring any found pets into our Peppermint Pig Thrift and Gift store during regular business hours (Tuesday– Friday 11-4:30 and Saturday 12-4) and we’ll be happy to scan the animal for a microchip.
Keep a Collar and Identification Tags on your Animal
Returning lost pets to their owners is easiest if dogs wear the required county license and city tags and also a rabies tag. It’s also highly recommended that your dog wear an identification tag with your name, address and phone number. Be sure to keep the collar on your dog at all times.
Cats can wear an I.D. tag and some cities require a license.
If your dog gets lost, call the Hamilton County Dog Warden at 513.541.6100.
