What To Do… if you find a pet

When you find an animal that may be someone’s pet, please be empathetic and act the way you would want someone to if they found your lost pet.

Please do not assume that the owners are neglectful or mean. It might not be their fault the animal got lost. Do not decide that they are not worth looking for, or that the pet is better off without them. The animal you found may belong to a family that is heartbroken over the loss of their beloved pet. Please do not decide to just keep the pet yourself or rehome it without looking for the original owners.

Take the animal to the local veterinary clinic

The vet should be able to scan the pet for a microchip, if there is one, for FREE

Some local places to post/call about lost & found animals:

You may also want to pass out or post fliers in your local area.

Kreacher Konnections is organizing and getting ready for puppy and kitten season, and we are in need of a couple of items you might have to spare.

  • Non-clumping cat litter
  • Small collars
  • Crates
  • Paper towels (couponers have any extra?)
  • Cleaner such as Lysol or Mr. Clean (couponers have any extra?)
  • Bleach
  • Dawn dish soap (original only – for washing fleas of very young kittens/puppies or nursing mothers)
  • Advantage flea preventative (for very young kittens/puppies)
  • Puppy or kitten dry food

You can drop items off at Doogies in Davison (they will hold them for us), or bring items to any showing (see Events).

Meet Lolo!

We received a call the evening of March 16th, 2014 from the local police who had found a dog tied to a fence so tight that she could not even sit down. The officer had fed her a whole bag of beef jerky, but could not get near her as she lashed out in fear. I fed her a whole can of wet food and some more treats, but each time I got the leash near her or moved too close she would angrily charge. The officers had no luck distracting her so I could untie her from the fence. So I borrowed a catch pole from PAWS (thank you very much) and came back with my husband. As soon as we got her loose from the fence and into the car her demeanor changed. She is still scared, but is resting in a blanket filled crate instead of the 2° weather. Hopefully this is the start of a much better life for her!
