Increasing the chances to find your lost pet
To virtually every dog owner or animal lover, Lost Dogs are as worrying as the inexplicable disappearance of a family member. Before you finish reading this line, chances are some dog somewhere will have gone missing. Losing Dogs can cause a lot of anguish, not just to the elders at home, but to the kids. The problem is that most owners who lose their dogs are clueless as to how to go about tracing Lost Dogs. In the event that you ever face such a situation, here's some useful information for successful Lost Dog Rescue.
Give your dog an ID
The very best people should do is to provide their dogs with licensed tags or a microchip. This will be of invaluable help in the unfortunate event of their pets going missing. Most cities and towns maintain records of license numbers, while local and national databases also have an updated list of chips registered with them. Should a dog warden or person find a lost dog, the ID would be of immense help to trace the owner. Thankfully, most dog and rescue shelters are equipped with scanners that can read chips. This done, they can then avail a 24-hour hotline to obtain an owner's contact details, viz., name, address and telephone number.
Tips to trace Lost Dogs
While Losing Dogs can be a truly harrowing experience, there are several methods you can adopt should you find yourself in such a predicament.
There's one big advantage in successful, Lost Dog Rescue efforts. Specifically, the experiences gained by people who had lost and found their dogs, (through one or more of the above measures), can now be shared with others who have Lost Dogs. After all, as any dog lover would say to one who has lost a dog - "your dog is my dog".
