How to Prevent Losing Your Pet

These are a few measures you can take to ensure your pets are safe and reduce the chances of losing or having them stolen.

  1. Ensure your Brevard pet always has a collar and ID tag on at all times, which should include your updated phone number.
  2. Spay or neuter your pet. Sterilized animals are less attractive to thieves because they cannot be bred to profit from puppies. Sterilized pets also do not have wanderlust and are less likely to roam and get lost or stolen.
  3. Get your pet microchipped. Microchips are an easy and inexpensive implanted form of identification that gives your contact information when scanned at an animal shelter or clinic.
  4. Please keep your pets indoors for at least a month after moving to give them enough time to get habituated to the new location and ensure it does not go back to their old home.
  5. Please keep your pet safe when outdoors by leashing them or looking into safe ways your pet can enjoy the outdoors.
  6. Instead of leaving your pet in the yard unattended, consider hiring a walker, enrolling them in daycare, and drop-in pet services for play sessions while you are away from home.
