WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU HEAR YOURSELF SAYING THE FOLLOWING:

“Oh no! I’ve lost my pet!

  • Check at the Lied, North Las Vegas or Henderson shelters… daily.  It may take as much as 2 weeks to locate your pet. 
  • Notify your microchip company.
  • Put up posters around the area, including a picture if you have one.
  • Post notices in grooming shops and veterinary offices.
  • Place an ad in the R-J… it’s free!
  • Offer a reward. (You don’t have to mention the amount.)
  • Use web sites (see below).

“I found somebody else’s pet!”

  • Check for owner information on a name tage or the veterinary office named on the rabies tag.
  • Ask your neighbors about the pet.
  • Take the pet to a veterinarian’s office to see if it’s micro-chipped.
  • Post signs around the neighborhood, grooming shops and veterinarian offices.
  • Place a free ad in the newspaper.
  • Use web sites (see below).
  • Ask respondents questions to assure it’s the correct owner.
