Losing your pet can be frightening experience, and it can happen to even the most dedicated pet parents. Acting quickly is the key to being reunited with your furry loved one. Here are tips and resources to help you search for your lost pet or reunite a found pet with their family.

1. File a Lost & Found Report at Dallas Animal Services (DAS)

Lost and Found Reports can be filed online.

2. Visit DAS (and other shelters in your area) to look for your pet.

Shelters receive many lost animals every week, so it’s a great place to start your search.

3. Put up lost/found pet flyers

Post them (with permission) in high-traffic areas, such as local animal shelters, libraries, coffee shops, community centers, houses of worship, and veterinarians’ offices.

4. Post the pet’s photo and information online

Use these on these popular lost & found pet websites:

And, don’t forget to share the pet’s information on your Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and Nextdoor pages.
