Tips for finding a lost dog

When your beloved dog goes missing, it can be an extremely emotional and stressful time for you and your family. Dogs are more than just pets; they are a part of our families and losing them can feel like losing a loved one. It’s important to take immediate action when you realise that your dog has gone missing.

Check your home and garden

If your dog has gone missing from home start there as it’s not uncommon for dogs to hide in unexpected places. While it might sound obvious, it’s easy to overlook hidden nooks and crannies where your furry friend could be waiting to be found.

Dogs can be masters of disguise, so don’t forget to check under beds, behind curtains, and in any other small spaces where they might be hiding. Check your garden thoroughly as well including any sheds, garages and shrubbery. Taking these steps quickly could mean the difference between easily finding out that your dog is safe and sound, and a much more stressful and prolonged search.

Check your neighbourhood

The next step is to search your neighbourhood and ask your neighbours if they’ve seen your dog. You can also post flyers around your community and on social media, and contact local animal rescue organisations to alert them.

Contact the right people

If your dog has gone missing, make sure you contact the Appointed kennels in your area (see tabs above for your council) Contact North Clwyd Animal Rescue on 01745 560546 to register your dog missing in case we hear any reports. Use social media to post a picture of your dog and if possible a location and photo of where you last saw your dog. This will help, further down the line if you need help from other experts with special equipment.

Don’t give up hope!

Don’t give up hope! Many lost dogs are eventually found and reunited with their families. Keep searching and spreading the word about your missing pet.

Remember that your dog is a cherished member of your family, and it’s okay to feel upset, anxious, and worried when they go missing. Stay positive, take action, and keep the faith that you will be reunited with your furry friend soon.

social media

SOCIAL MEDIA WORKS!

Social media really helps to reunite lost dogs with owners. Post on local pages, groups, and pet pages with clear info and a photo. Real-time updates increase the chances of happy reunion.

Try LOCAL VETS

Want to find your lost dog? Contact local vet clinics! People who find stray pets often take them to vets to check for a microchip. Share a photo and your contact info with the clinic and they’ll contact you if a matching dog comes in.
