Stop your pet from getting lost

If you've lost a pet before, you will know how devastating it is not to know where they are and whether they are injured, stolen or hurt. Hundreds of pets go missing every year.

If you've lost a pet before, you will know how devastating it is not to know where they are and whether they are injured, stolen or hurt. Hundreds of pets go missing every year. How can you make sure it's not yours?

Take action:


Tag it – a collar with your phone number on it will make it easy for people who find your pet to contact you; many pets go missing when fireworks go off in the area – make sure your pets are locked securely inside your home; fence your garden – this might not keep cats inside, but it does keep dogs inside; leash dogs at all times to prevent them from running away; neuter and spay your pets – pets who have had the "op" are much less likely to roam the neighborhood looking for potential mates; get a good pet sitter – if you go on holiday, make sure that the person who looks after your pets knows them, likes them and looks after them properly.
