How to find the family of a lost pet!

So you‘ve found a loose dog or cat and scooped them up...now what??

First and foremost, we can’t stress this enough...when you find a loose dog or cat who is just a hot mess, please do NOT assume that because they’re in rough shape, that means they’ve been neglected or abused or “dumped”. Sometimes that’s true, but more often it isn’t! When dogs and cats get loose, especially low rider dogs with long and/or curly hair and long haired cats, it is amazing how quickly just being out in the elements for an extended period can transform them. They may have a family out there who cares about them very much and took great care of them and has been missing them tremendously. This is why MICROCHIPS ARE SO IMPORTANT!!
