Lost or Found Pets – What To Do
Bring a found animal to us immediately so we can check for a microchip, the most reliable method of reuniting lost pets with their owners.
Make signs with a photo to post around your neighborhood.
Call Williamson County Animal Control (615-790-5590), Metro Animal Control (615-862-7928), Nashville Humane Society (615-352-1010), and all local veterinary hospitals. Give a description and/or fax a photo.
Go to straymagnet.com/lost-found/lost-found-board/ and post a description of the lost or found animal on their bulletin board. This is a great local resource for lost pets. You can also sign up for email alerts regarding lost pets in your county.
Go to www.nashvillepetfinders.com and search for found animals or post the foundling.
Note regarding found animals: Because there are businesses built around picking up “lost” dogs and selling them, it is wise to withhold some important bit of information about the animal from the description and/or photo. If someone calls claiming to be the owner, you can ask appropriate questions to make sure the pet is really theirs.
Loving Homes Needed
We all know how many animals, especially dogs and cats, are in desperate need of safe and loving homes. Adopting a pet is a serious commitment. But caregiving responsibilities are rewarded many times over by the years of joy these furry family members bring to our lives.
If you or someone you know might be in a position to give a rescued animal a home, please let us know!
