Lost an Animal?

Please contact the Shelter on 01392 439898 and we will log details of your call to see if anyone has reported your pet as found.

Here are some more tips to help you find your pet:

  • Ask neighbours to check their sheds and garages, just in case your pet has managed to get locked in somewhere.
  • Put up lost pet posters in your area in all public places and noticeboards – use a photo if you have one and include a telephone number.
  • Do a door-to-door leaflet drop in your local area ensuring every household receives a leaflet, even those you’ve already spoken to, so that they have your contact details should they see your lost pet.
  • Phone local vets – an injured or ill animal may have been handed in to a veterinary surgery.
  • Contact your local newspaper – most local papers have a lost and found pet column.
  • Call the RSPCA’s National Helpline on 0300 1234 999, so they can check their lost and found register.
  • Phone the local council (especially important for dogs as the council have responsibility for stray dogs) and Police, to see if they have any record of your pet being found.
  • Contact other local charities such as Cats Protection or Blue Cross.

DON’T GIVE UP – lost or stolen pets, particularly cats, can reappear many months after disappearing.

We strongly advise that you microchip your pet so that if it is found, it can be safely reunited with you as quickly as possible.
