Tip on Finding Lost Cats and Finding their Owners

I recently read an article in the AVMA (American Veterinary Medical Association) journal about "search methods that people use to find owners of lost pets."

This article highlighted the results of a survey done of 188 individuals who found lost pet in Dayton Ohio.

The results of this survey showed that only 38% of pets were reunited with their owners. The most 5 common method pet owners were found included:

  • Information provided by an animal agency
  • Placement of a newspaper ad
  • Walking the neighborhood
  • Signs in neighborhood
  • Information on pet tag

    One thing that I noticed is that most people that found a pet did not realize that it is free to advertise a lost pet in most local papers. This was the #2 method of reuniting pets. If you find a pet – be sure to advertise with your local paper!
