Lost…and Found!

Share |

According to the Missing Pets Bureau, approximately 5,700 cats and dogs are lost or stolen every week. The American Animal Hospital Association also reports that roughly 30% of pet owners will lose a pet in their lifetime. These statistics are frightening. Many people have a close bond with their pets and often consider them a member of the family. They’re a source of companionship for the elderly, a “stand-in child” for some couples and a best friend to all.

Losing a pet can be a traumatic and troublesome experience. A pet can wander quite some distance in a short amount of time. As soon as you discover that your pal is missing, don’t waste a moment. To improve the odds of recovering your pet, it’s important to take action immediately. Follow these helpful tips:

  1. Search your home and yard from top to bottom. It could be possible that your pet is caught or trapped, sick or hiding. Explore your neighborhood too and bring a friend!
  2. Contact your animal control department. Visit local shelters and check animal emergency clinics.
  3. Prepare a flyer with a picture or description of your pet, the date they went missing, where they were last seen and how to contact you.
  4. Call your neighborhood veterinarians. People often leave lost and found reports with them or bring injured strays to them.
  5. Place a classified ad in your local paper, as well as surrounding towns.

Cutter’s Mill is proud to offer Zoomback Advanced GPS Dog Locator. How it works is quite simple: you attach a small, lightweight (2.5 oz.), water-resistant locator to your dog’s collar with a durable and secure pouch. Using satellite and cellular technologies, the locator allows you to pinpoint your dog’s location whenever you want via Zoombak.com, mobile phone or live customer care. You can also determine your dog’s location in real time using the continuous tracking option. Just log on to Zoombak.com to view a map of their current location, as well as the route they’ve taken since leaving home. Another useful feature is “safety zones.” If you don’t want your pet to leave your backyard, for example, you can customize the perimeter of your yard as a “safety zone”, and if your dog leaves that area, you will promptly be notified by a text message and/or email.
