Lost My Dog & Don't Know Where to Start
Posted in the Pets Forum
My 3 year old yellow lab dug out from his fenced yard yesterday on Trumbauersville Road in Quakertown. He is wearing a collar, but I found the tag which fell off. He is VERY friendly so he's probably off playing. He has done this before but he usually comes back. He has been missing since yesterday and I don't know where to begin to call to see if he was picked up. I have only lived here a short time, but I don't think there is an SPCA near here. Can someone help?
I'm sorry I can't offer you more help but here are a couple of ideas. First, I would start calling all shelters in the area (look on the internet or look in the phone book). If there aren't too many shelters, sometimes dogs get turned into local vet offices. If that leads to nothing, put some flyers up around your neighborhood with a picture and good description of the dog. Is he microchipped? If he is, you can contact one of the microchip companies and they will send out a notification stating that the dog is lost (I have signed up for email notiifications through http://public.homeagain.com and anytime there's an animal in the area that is lost I receive an email). I would strongly suggest getting him microchipped when found if he tends to dig himself out of your yard. If he dig himself out again and is picked up by animal control or taken to a vet, they're able to scan your dog and your information pops up. This way he gets back to you quickly. I hope this has helped some. Good Luck with your search and hope you find your buddy soon!!!!
Did you ever find your dog?
