Missing pets

What should I do if:

I found a lost pet. What should I do?

  • Collar ID tag

    Does the pet have an ID tag on his collar? Most owners will have their information on an ID tag. This was a law introduced in the UK in 1992.

  • Vet or animal rescue

    You should contact your local vet or pet shelter. They will have equipment to scan for a microchip.

  • Is the microchip registered?

    When scanned the vet or pet shelter should be able to locate the owner. This is why it’s extremely important to keep your details up to date on MyPet or another approved microchip database.

  • Social media

    If the pet isn’t microchipped or isn’t registered on a database it’s always useful to share on social media. Your local area will more than likely have a lost and found site. You may see the pet has been reported missing here. Posting a picture here along with some information on where you found the pet will help anyone who is looking for the pet!

My pet is missing! What should I do?

  • Is your pet registered?

    Ensure your pet's microchip is registered on an official microchip database such as MyPet. If you don’t know your pets microchip, check with your vet and anyone else who may know it such as the breeder or rehoming centre. Ensuring the data stored against your pets microchip is up to date is vital.

  • Mark your pet as lost with your database

    Mark your pet as lost on your database of choice. This will help ensure if any vet or other authorised party searches your pets microchip they will know he or she is missing!

  • Is the microchip registered?

    When scanned the vet or pet shelter should be able to locate the owner. This is why it’s extremely important to keep your details up to date on MyPet or another approved microchip database.

  • Alert your local dog warden / your local council

    Alerting people in your area like your dog warden can help get your pet home quickly if he or she is handed into the warden or a local pound.

  • Social media

    Check lost and found pet groups on social media. Most local areas have a lost and found group. You should also post about your missing pet here.
