10 Helpful Tips for Finding a Lost Pet


3. Consider Your Pet’s Temperament

Also, consider your pet’s personality. Is your lost dog an outgoing and friendly pooch? Or does he tend to be shy? A sociable dog that has found itself missing its owner might want to find other dogs or people to calm its nerves. Thus, you may want to check local parks, dog run areas, or anywhere people and dogs congregate.

Cat owners will want to think along the same lines. Cats are usually pretty curious animals and there are many stories of cats wandering into garages or other open doors and then accidentally being closed inside.

Head out into the neighborhood and call to your kitty in a friendly, reassuring manner. You may get a meow back from behind a closed door or up a tree!
