Lost & Found
What to do if your pet is missing:
- Act immediately! A fast start is the best start. Your pet may need your assistance to return home safely.
- Check your neighborhood thoroughly. Whistling, calling, walking, and driving are still the best first steps to finding a lost pet. Talk to neighbors, leaving a description of your pet with as many people as you can. The more people watching out for your pet, the better. Neighborhood children, paper carrier and mail carrier can be especially helpful.
- Call Camp Companion at 507-951-7801
- Contact local city facilities to see if your animal has been impounded
- Impounded animals are not kept indefinitely. Options range from releasing to animal rescue groups, adoptions, or euthanasia. If impounded, you should be prepared – you’ll likely be required to pay necessary fees and/or a fine if your pet is not properly vaccinated and licensed.
- Contact local rescue / humane organizations to let them know your pet is missing and see if they have any information.
- If you adopted an animal from Camp Companion, please contact us ASAP at 507-951-7801
- Advertise that your pet is lost.
- Most grocery stores have a community bulletin board where you may be able to post flyers.
- Hand out flyers in the neighborhood where your pet was lost or last seen
- Notify vet clinics in your area to see if your pet was brought in injured by a good samaritan.
- Post a listing on Craig’s List and Pets911 and petfinder.com web sites.
- Above all, don’t give up searching for your lost pet after just a few days or even weeks. Keep checking your available resources. Your pet may wander or may be cared for by someone for some time before being turned in to a shelter.
