We provide an easy, fast, and reliable means of reporting your lost dog or cat by helping you submit your furry friend's details to your local government's directory, increasing your chances of reuniting with them.

Steps to Take When You’ve Lost Your Pet

After losing your pet, you typically have a 90% chance of finding them the same day. But what happens if you've searched the entire house and compound and there are no signs of them? Well, after the first day, the probability of reunification dwindles to 60%, and that's when you start to worry. But there are measures you can take to find your lost dog.

Narrow down your search radiusBased on how you know your pet's behavior, it's easier to determine the search radius to ease your search. To help know where to search, ask yourself questions like:

  • Did my dog or cat go missing at home, in the park, or in an unfamiliar area?
  • Did something frighten them, or was s/he looking for adventure?
  • Based on the timeline, how far could s/he have gone?
  • Does your dog love to visit specific neighbors or places within your locality?
  • Is your dog laid-back or active enough to wander far off?
Start your search within the area where you lost themIf you've not yet found them, start searching for your cat within the area where they went missing. Below are some tips to increase your chances of retrieving them:

  • Calmly call out their name.
  • Seek help from family, friends, and neighbors.
  • Generate flyers/posters and post them at strategic places to create awareness.
  • Keep your door open for your lost pet to enter the home in case they find their way back.
  • Retrace your path – they may have returned to where you lost them searching for you.
