If your pet is LOST, please give an accurate and detailed description. Include your pet’s gender, whether they have been fixed, their age, any distinguishing markings as well as whether they have been tattooed or microchipped.
If you’re dealing with a FOUND pet, please don’t describe them as a certain age, breed, or gender unless you are absolutely sure– you don’t want the animal to not make it home because of misinformation.
We find that putting flyers in people’s mailboxes is one of the best ways to find a missing cat.
You should cover a three block radius minimum. It’s very important to put up lots of posters, and to put flyers in the neighbour’s mailboxes. Print them on brightly-coloured paper so that they stand out.
We’ve seen animals reunited with their owners after months of being missing, and having come from a completely different area (E.g. A neutered cat who who was missing from the east end of St. John’s was found roaming in the woods St. Phillips — four months later).
