Let everyone you know, and even those you don't, that you've lost your pet.

  • Notify people who are familiar with your pet and/or your neighborhood that it is lost (i.e. newspaper delivery, mail carriers, security patrol, and neighborhood children).
  • Let your neighborhood or condo association know, sometimes they are willing to send out an email on your behalf.
  • Contact veterinary practices in your area. They may have "Lost and Found" bulletin boards in their offices.Remember to reach out to practices throughout your area, not just your own.
  • Read the "found" ads and take out a "lost" ad in the Times Picayune and Gambit.
  • If your neighborhood permits it, post flyers in the area where you live. Click here for a sample.
  • Post and search for your lost pet on www.craigslist.org and www.nola.com
  • Neighborhood businesses can also lend a hand by posting flyers or keeping an eye out; especially those who offer pet products or services.
  • Contact your Microchip provider. Verify all the contact information on your account is current. Also, let them know you've lost your pet. Sometimes they can send an email to other pet owners in your area.
