How To Find A Lost Pet

While looking for tips to find a dog that is lost in our area I came across this information on PetFinder and wanted to share it with all of you. Please share it with everyone you know who has a pet.

I particularly like the advice of making huge signs as most that are posted on 8.5 x 11 paper are far too small to be seen while driving in a car. Get whiteboard and cut it out in the shape of a dog. Just a generic dog shape will be fine. Write, Help me I’m lost, on it. That will catch someone’s attention don’t you think? Put your phone number in a large easy to read size. Post signs at any and every store that will let you. Go to your local truck stop if there is one in your area and hand out fliers to the truckers. They are nice and willing to help. That is a lot of eyes.

I don’t think it would hurt to ask the local police either. After all they are out there riding around right? And how about local realtors? And mailmen! All they can say is no, but if you flashed the picture then they have seen it. Leave it on your mailbox. Set up a large poster size whiteboard/foamboard in your front yard with huge ( it really does have to be huge)  font in black or red. Don’t forget the local dog and children’s park.  Use Craigslist!

Also I have noticed a lot of dogs without collars while at home. What sense does that make?!  If they run out of the door and get lost they are without their identification!!! Make them wear it all of the time.  A lot of the lost dog ads say that the animal doesn’t have it’s collar on. That is a an accident waiting to happen.

Any other ideas are very welcome.

Village Hero

There are still some heroes around!  If you take your time to help an animal that is in distress then you are a hero.  A few nights ago a man heard a dog yelping desperately in the distance.  It was late in the evening and bitterly cold outside but this wonderful man took the time to go out and see what might be wrong.  He had to go quite a ways into the but he found a dog stuck up to its face in the mud and water of a freezing creek.  Emergency crews had to be called in to help remove the dog.  unbeknownst to them all at the time was the fact that this poor creature was blind and deaf. My heart sings with joy that this man was kind enough to take the time and go see what some yelping in the distance was about.  He was willing to be an instrument of God.  How many of us are willing to take time to notice what is really going on around us and step out of our selflessness to help another in distress?  We all need to slow down and be willing to listen and then respond if the call comes.  It takes a village to raise all of us.
