What to do if you find a lost pet in Denver
Most people are aware of the method to follow when their pet is lost. Either they will go and have a check with the dog shelters, place ads in “lost & found” columns in classifieds or, stick posters to find their pet as soon as possible. However, most people are not familiar with what to do if they find a lost pet. If you happen to face such situations, then you first need to be prepared and ready to care for the pet.
Never presume a stray cat or dog to be abandoned. There is more likelihood that the rumpled and disheveled animal is lost and also that a worried and frenzied family is on the look for it.
Things that you need to do instantly
If you find a lost pet wandering in the streets, you first need to get hold of it and help it feel safe since there are many chances of the animal getting hit by a car. However, you must never put yourself in risk.
Search for tags. If the animal possesses one, with the contact number of the owner, dial it to for the joyful reunion incident to happen at once.
A dog that has a license can swiftly be located by the animal control agency in your county. In other words, these fortunate animals possess a ticket back to home.
Inform the authorities
Notify the lost pet to the animal control agency in your county or humane shelter. If you opt to take the pet to the county shelter, there are high probabilities of him getting back to his owner or another new home.
If you wish to keep the pet all by yourself, inquire to adopt the animal, if the owner couldn’t be traced. Certain shelters permit you to become a supporting adopter to enable you to save the pet if no one adopts it.
Most of the shelters are filled to capacity and jam-packed and so if you desire and have the ability to look after the pet until the original owner is discovered, inform the shelter authorities that you want to do so. The majority of the agencies may agree to this.
If you don’t wish to leave the animal in a shelter, then there are certain things that you need to do. The law necessitates you to report to the local animal control agency so that the details about the animal are accessible for the owner.
You also need to place “found” advertisements for a minimum period of 2 weeks in a newspaper in your locality. On seeing this, the owner of the pet can claim him back, any time within the subsequent six months.
When you place an ad, you must leave a relevant piece of information with reference to the pet as this will be of more help to appropriately recognize the owner of the pet.
When someone comes to you saying that they are the owner of the pet, then you can inquire them about the name and the contact number of the veterinarian of the pet. You can call the veterinarian and confirm things before giving out the animal to them.
A lost animal is always panicky and startled and so you must do your best to bring it back to normal stage.
