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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
Secure your home and yard.
Fix gaps in fences, secure window, and make sure doors close properly.
