Some of the best steps you can take to find a lost pet start well before that pet disappears. Prepare by taking lots of photographs of your pet or pets. If you have a digital camera, this can be a perfect way to snap quick pictures whenever your pet’s appearance changes. For example, your dog may look very different when he is fully clipped for summer than he does in the winter when you may let his fur grow long for outdoor warmth. Furthermore, ID tags and other identifying information attached to a collar can help a great deal. Be sure your cat or dog, even if he or she is normally an indoor-only pet, carries a proper pet identification tag. This low-tech and low cost solution can work incredibly well in reuniting a lost pet with its home.
