Fill out the Clay Humane LOST AND FOUND PET FORM
Clay Humane is dedicated to helping reunite pet owners with their missing pets and each year we receive more than 2500 calls from those in need of guidance in recovering/returning missing pets to their families. Fill out the form to report your lost pet. Our staff maintains a lost/found file to assist both those that have lost and those that have found pets.
To increase your chances of recovering a lost pet, it is best to be proactive.
- Always make sure your dog has an identification tag. Over 90% of dogs are reunited with their families when wearing a tag.
- Because collars and tags can sometimes come off your pet, it is best to have your pet microchipped by your veterinarian.
- Have color photos of your pet - they should be full body and close-up from the front and side.
Tips For Finding A Lost Pet
If your pet becomes lost, do the following:
ACT IMMEDIATELY! Contact all animal shelters in your area and all surrounding areas. Also, visit all animal shelters providing each with a photo and an accurate description of your pet. Many shelters have bulletin boards for these flyers.
- Contact veterinarians in your area and surrounding areas including emergency animal hospitals who handle after hour emergencies and provide them with a flyer with information about your pet.
- If your pet is microchipped, contact the manufacturer. Most microchip companies provide a service for lost pet flyer distribution.
- Place lost ad in all local newspapers.
- Search your neighborhood- Walk or drive slowly around your neighborhood several times a day. Call your pet's name and listen. Your pet may be injured or frightened or unable to come to you. After you call their name, wait to see if your pet comes to you.
- Ask neighbors & delivery people if they have seen your pet. Hand out fliers to these people.
- Don't give up your search. Animals who have been lost for months, even years, have been found.
