What to do if you find a lost dog?
April 4, 2020
You’re walking in your neighborhood, and you come upon a dog you don’t recognize. The dog may be lost. What should you do? Safety is always your first priority.
If the dog is acting wildly, call animal control, but if you can approach the dog, use a soft voice and move slowly. Check for a collar and ID tags.
Get the dog to a safe space, preferably to a veterinarian office, where a scan can be done for a microchip. Next, take a picture of the dog and create a poster with a description of the dog, including its gender.
Distribute the posters around the neighborhood, at shelters and at all the veterinary clinics in town.
