Lost A Pet
If your pet is lost, first check your immediate neighborhood and talk to your neighbors to see if they saw your pet and, if so, where, and let them know that she/he is missing and have a picture with you to show them. Many times your pet may have stayed close to your home, but a neighbor took her/him in thinking she/he was a stray. Fayetteville Animal Services also maintains an online database where you can search for your lost pet. Go to http://fayetteville.animalshelternet.com/ to search for your lost pet. Make sure to select "Found Pets" as well as "Stray Animal Search"
The most important thing you can do, however, is to come down to the Animal Shelter and look for her/him yourself. There is no one that can identify your pet better than you. Come to the Shelter every two or three days and look for your pet. You can also download a Lost Dog Report or a Lost Cat Report and e-mail it to Animal Services to allow us to assist in getting your pet back to you.
The Democrat Gazette will allow you to run a lost pet ad at no charge for three days. Contact the Democrat Gazette at 571-6400 for more information. Also, the website fayar.craigslist.org has a lost and found section that can assist your search, and social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter can help spread the word. Look at the City of Fayetteville Animal Shelter Petfinder and Shelter Net pages to see if your pet show up on those websites and come to the Shelter and look for your pet. Also check with veterinary clinics in your area and describe your pet or bring a picture of your lost pet to the clinics.
