Lost Pet? Found Pet?

Lost a pet?
Quick action and personal involvement in the recovery process are key components of recovering your lost pet. These steps can help you locate a lost pet as quickly as possible.

    • Tell the community about your lost pet
    • Post information on our Lost and Found Directory
    • Search our Lost and Found Directory
    • Post and search other online resources:
      • Facebook, Bonner County Critter Finders
      • Local Lost and Found pet sites
      • Local yard sale sites
      • Craigslist
    • Post fliers around your neighborhood.
    • Tell your family and friends.
    • Notify PAS and local veterinary clinics. Let everyone know your pet is missing. Confirm we have current contact information for you.
    • Search your neighborhood. Don’t give up hope. (A lost cat is usually 3-5 houses away. They can get locked in neighbor’s garages and sheds, or hide under porches. If it’s scared, it may not come when called.)
    • Talk to your neighbors and any neighborhood businesses.

When your pet is found, remember to take down any notices you’ve posted online and around your neighborhood.
