Found Pet Help
If possible, walk the area where you found the pet. Take the animal with you if possible.
Check Facebook, NextDoor, Shelter Facebook accounts to see if the animal has been reported being lost.
Look for posted flyers in the area about the pet.
Post the animal on social media. Give just a general description and the area where the animal was found. It may be better not to post all the information on the pet. Keep some information private so you can ask the responder identifying questions, i.e. collar color? sex? neutered? microchip? distinguishing marks (i.e. 3 white toes on right rear foot)
Take the animal to a local pet store, vet, or shelter for a microchip scan. Many owners do register the chip, and the microchip company will notify the registered owner.
Call the animal control authority for your area. If the pet is not in the shelter's jurisdiction, they will be happy to point you to the correct one. DON'T JUST BRING THE ANIMAL IN TO YOUR LOCAL SHELTER, LET ANIMAL CONTROL COME PICK UP.
If you decide to hold the animal while waiting on an owner to claim it, you must keep the animal for 10 calendar days before offering it up to rehoming.

Life Can Hand Us Lemons
Rehome Your Pet
Sometimes life throws lemons our way and no amount of lemonade can make it right. If you have to give up your pet, and all other avenues have failed, try ReHome through Adopt A Pet. If that doesn't work then we will be glad to talk about taking your pet into one of our foster homes until we can find a new adoptor.
