If you’ve lost a pet, don’t give up too quickly! Taking the following steps can help make the difference in finding your missing pet.

Contact all area shelters and file a lost report. Visit area shelters often to see if your pet has been found.

  • Contact veterinary clinics in your area and provide them with a lost pet report.

  • Canvass your neighborhood and post signs in the area for your lost pet. Don’t provide your address on these notices, just a phone number.

  • Check Facebook, Craigslist and other online sources as many people will post found pet ads online.

  • Contact your veterinarian and ask them to post a lost pet flyer and to alert you if someone brings your pet to their clinic.

  • Don’t give up. Lost pets have been reunited with their owners months after being lost.

Tip: We recommend two forms of identification for pets at all times.

  • An Osceola County license tag. Animal Services staff have access to this information 24/7 and we will help get your pet back home.

  • A microchip. A microchip is helpful when a tag is lost or stolen. This is a permanent form of identification to help ensure you are reunited with your pet.

  • Microchip information can be updated using the chip manufacturer’s website.
