8 Tips to Help You Find Your Pet Lost on Fourth of July Independence Day

Did you enjoy yourselves in Fourth of July party last week? I think the aerial firework display is really elaborate. While the bad news is that my dog has escaped from its cage and hide its body under our car. Fortunately, we found it quickly and it was not out of condition. Did you find your four-legged friend who have run away during Fourth of July celebrations? If still not, we hope below tips can help reunite you with your pet quickly.

  1. Time is of the essence.

Don’t delay your search or believe that your pet will find their way home.

  1. Check for all local animal shelters, even those you think are so far that pet would not run to.

You can call the shelters but check in person is a better way because you can recognize immediately if you see your pet. And be sure to have a photo of your pet on-hand as well as their veterinary records.

  1. Post highly visible signs around your neighborhood.

Post flyers around your neighborhood with your pet’s photo, name, and your phone number.

  1. Post photos and information on social media.

Places like Craigslist, Facebook, Instagram and the Nextdoor app all help pets find their way back home.

  1. Look in those hard-to-reach places.

Walk through your home and pay attention to areas where your pet may be get themselves stuck.

  1. Put personal items outside:

Leave your old T-shirt or pets bedding and toys on your patio to help your pet find his way back.

  1. Find out whether your animals were injured in crash:

We don’t want to think about the possibility that our pets were injured, but check with the state Department of Transportation and reach out to local police department by calling the non-emergency number and inquiring about crashes involving animals.

  1. Use your community newspaper:

Place a “lost pet” ad in the newspaper and search for the “found” section.
