Whether you lost a pet, found a pet, or are curious about a stray, we are here to help.

Blue Ridge Humane Society will provide you tips, resources, and advice on what to do if you find yourself in a Lost and Found pet situation. You can help your pet from becoming lost by following these simple steps:

  1. Get your pet spayed or neutered.
    • Many unaltered animals will escape from their owner’s property in search of a mate. To eliminate their risk of roaming, contact us for information.
  2. Keep them indoors. 
    • Many times outdoor pets get bored or scared and find themselves lost. It can be difficult for a passerby to determine if an animal is an outdoor pet or a stray. The safest place for your pet is inside with you.
  3. Microchip your pet! 
    • If your pet has been micro-chipped, your chances of finding your pet as a stray increases dramatically. Contact us about having your pet micro-chipped.
  4. Keep a collar and ID tag on your pet.
    • Always walk your dog with a collar or harness that won’t slip off. ID tags should contain your name, address, and phone number.
  5. Secure your home and yard.
    • Fix gaps in fences, secure window, and make sure doors close properly.
