September is Lost and Found Month
If your own pet has ever gone missing, you know what a relief it is to get the phone call from someone who’s dialed the number on your pets’ collar.
Critical in many of these reunions is the good Samaritan who found or chaperoned your pup to a safe place.
Here are some tips for what to do if you want to help reunite the dog and its owners:
There are three things you should always keep in mind if you see a stray animal: the safety of the animal, your own safety, and the safety of others.
Check their tags!
If you can get close enough, check for identification. If the pet has no identification, have the pet scanned for a microchip - it's at no cost to you and can help reunite the pet with their family.
Call for back up
Try to get the pet into a fenced area where it won’t escape. and call for backup! Your local Vet or Animal shelter can give you more direction.
Make sure your Pet wears a collar (even if you believe they’ll never run away, or they do not go outside). Accidents happen. Another option is to get your pet micro-chipped. Micro-chipping reunites lost pets with owners within minutes of being found. Micro-chipping is only around $20- $30.
About Justice Rescue:
Some might think an abused dog is hopelessly unable to overcome their abuse, but they are amazing creatures. While some dogs make go through unspeakable cruelty, dogs who have been abused, abandoned and seem broken in every way, can learn to trust again. A second chance is something everyone deserves. Since 2011, and at great personal expense, Justice Rescue has taken in and rehabilitated nearly 5,000 dogs to loving forever homes. Justice Rescue does not euthanize for space, and at least a dozen of the current animals that were severely abused and not adoptable, will enjoy lifetime sanctuary with Justice Rescue. Justice Rescue is one of the East Coast’s only nonprofit organizations that actively patrols our communities for animal abuse. If it wasn’t for the generosity of supporters like you, they wouldn’t exist.
