Search your neighborhood

Search your neighborhood every day until your pet is found. Post notices throughout the neighborhood using a clear, up-to-date photo. Talk to your neighbors and any neighborhood businesses. Offering a reward can also be helpful.

Follow up

When your pet is found, remember to take down any notices you've posted online and around your neighborhood.
