We just wanted to let you all know what you can do to help out. Feel free to follow our page and offer suggestions and ideas, search through Craigslist in both the lost and found and pet section and try to make matches, monitor other lost and found pet pages to possibly match lost and found pets, search Pet Harbor listings, volunteer to hang or take down signs, and post sightings. Signs are still the best way to bring home a lost or found pet, especially since not everyone is familiar with or follows social media or does not know about the lost and found pet pages available. You would literally have a hand in reuniting a lost or found pet with their families and that feeling is a huge reward. We also need people to drive through the area where pets have been lost or sighted. You can drive by at the exact moment when a lost pet comes out of hiding or is on the search for food. We recommend keeping slip leashes and food in you car to try to lure them to safety. The promise of food is pretty enticing. Again, you could have a hand in bringing home a lost pet.
If boots on the ground isn't your thing, try your hand at fostering. We hold onto the lost or found pet for 10-14 days and need both long term and short term fosters. If you are not interested in fostering but are looking to add a new family member or know someone who is, please consider our adoptable pets. If you can't foster or adopt, please share our adoptable pets. You never know who might see it.
We are also in need of food, preventatives, collar and leashes, crates, and toy donations. If you have extras and would like to donate them to our page, please let us know. We will gladly accept them. We also rely on monetary donations from our community. Any "unclaimed" pet that we take in under the page, gets fully vetted and microchipped before eligible for adoption. Your monetary donations would go towards the cost of vetting, buying food and other supplies for our foster families, and paying for office materials such as staple guns, staples, sheet protectors, and pay for signs that we have printed at FedEx.
We understand that we all lead busy lives. We are all volunteers who want to reunite lost and found pets with their families. If we cannot do that, then our goal is to find them their forever home. We can always use your help. Feel free to jump in at any time and help. We would really appreciate it!
Thanks again for being a part of our mission to reunite lost and found pets. We appreciate your support.
