Losing a pet is like losing a close companion. Every year, virtually 10 million pets go missing or get stolen in the US. It only gets more frustrating realizing that only 23% of missing pets find their way home. Knowing the measures to find your Miami Dade lost pets is critical but not always easy.

Filing a report on a lost pet, or a pet you’ve found, can be challenging, especially if you're not conversant with the process. Don't worry about that because DoNotPay has you covered. We're your online robotic lawyer; we will submit your report to the government database to make your filing hassle-free with just a few steps.

What to Do If You Lose Your Pet

If your dog or cat has run away from home for any reason, the best thing to do is take a few breaths, compose yourself and start your search. Maintain a positive mentality, and follow the practical steps discussed below.

  1. Check at Home First

Maybe your lost pet didn’t wander far from home. They may be hiding somewhere due to company at home. Perhaps they've been distracted by a wild animal. Some places to check include:

  • Closet
  • Garage/outbuildings
  • Basement
  • Garden
  • Pool
  1. Determine the Search Area

When trying to determine the search radius for your Miami Dade lost pets, you should let the following questions guide you:

  • Where did your pet get lost? At home or in an unfamiliar setting?
  • Did something scare them away, or are they the adventurous sort?
  • Does the dog or cat love visiting the neighbors?
  • Is the pet active enough to wander further, or are they timid to roam near the house?

Having the answers to these queries can help you make an informed decision on where to search.

  1. Make and Distribute Fliers

Creating and distributing posters is an excellent means of searching for your missing cat. Do not simply stick them on telephone poles or wires. Instead, hand them over directly to the neighbors to make your search more effective.
