If Your Cat or Dog Is Lost

How to find a dog or cat if they are missing:

• Call your local animal shelters and animal rescue organizations. Dogs and cats can travel many miles, so contact all the organizations in your area. If they haven't seen your pet, keep calling them every couple days. In Kathmandu, call the KAT Centre at 4377729.

Advice about how to find a dog or cat who is missing• Search for the lost dog or cat. Go all around your neighborhood on foot, by car, during the day and at night. Look in yards/gardens, closets, under cars, behind plants, and at your neighbors' homes as well as your own.

• Call and whistle to your pet. She may be injured, frightened, trapped or unable to come to you. Hearing your voice may encourage your pet to answer you. Stay in one place long enough for your pet to find you after you call.

• Tell friends, family, neighbors, kids, babysitters, etc. that your cat or dog is missing.

• Post 'Lost Dog' or 'Lost Cat' notices on bulletin boards in supermarkets, restaurants, hotels, and other businesses and around your neighborhood. Include the pet's name, description (breed, color, identifying marks, etc.), what your pet was wearing (collar, etc.), sex, age, a photograph, and your name, address, and phone number.

You can download and print blank notices for lost dogs and lost cats. Put a photo of your pet in the middle of the notice.How to find a lost dog or cat

• Leave out food for the dog or cat (unless that will attract too many other animals).

• If your pet goes in and out of your home through a door or window, leave it open (at least while someone is home).

• Keep trying to find the missing dog or cat. Pets sometimes return after being lost for many days or even weeks.
