Finding Lost Pets


Finding Lost Pets

Finding lost Pets
Different species of​ animals behave differently when they are lost and also in​ most of​ the​ situations,​ owners also panic and search frantically all over the​ place .​
What people don’t realize is​ that they shouldn’t take any action in​ haste but should put in​ some thinking .​
And in​ such critical situations,​ time cannot be wasted .​
If smart tactics are used,​ the​ animal will itself come walking to​ the​ owner .​
The first thing to​ do is​ to​ call out the​ name of​ the​ animal very loudly .​
Usually the​ owners call out the​ name of​ the​ animal at​ meal times .​
So the​ pet will associate the​ name calling with food and will come out of​ the​ hiding for food if​ they are in​ vicinity .​
Also,​ the​ dry food treats,​ which are given to​ the​ animal,​ can be put in​ a​ can and covered with a​ lid .​
Then the​ can should be rattled .​
Hearing the​ noise the​ pet will come rushing to​ have the​ treat,​ no matter where they are hiding .​
They will get tempted to​ have their treat .​
This technique is​ also known as​ conditioning response and is​ very effective .​

Very rarely will a​ pet come out of​ the​ hiding in​ broad daylight .​
The owners must wait till dusk and then start the​ search of​ the​ animal in​ the​ neighborhood .​
But they should not waste time during the​ day and it​ should be utilized to​ inform the​ law enforcement about the​ present situation,​ because in​ most of​ the​ states,​ it​ is​ a​ must to​ report a​ lost animal within an​ hour .​
And if​ this time limit is​ crossed the​ owner can be heavily penalized and even get arrested .​
All the​ legal requirements should be documented and all the​ names of​ the​ involved people should be noted down .​
This will help in​ providing a​ proof later .​
Portable torch or​ spotlight can be used to​ search around at​ night .​
This is​ also an​ effective technique because the​ animal will be looking straight at​ the​ human and also its eyes will reflect the​ light and shine in​ the​ dark .​
If the​ animal has escaped from the​ premises,​ every house in​ the​ neighborhood should be knocked and people should be shown pictures of​ the​ pet .​
Also,​ contact information should be left in​ case if​ they find the​ pet they can contact you​ .​
There can be a​ great possibility of​ someone spotting the​ animal .​
And if​ someone does see the​ animal,​ it​ will give the​ direction in​ which the​ animal is​ proceeding .​
The animal can be in​ big risk if​ it​ declawed or​ de-fanged .​
It will not have the​ basic means of​ self-defense .​
If in​ a​ dense area,​ it​ will hide till dark and then wander around in​ the​ night .​
Also the​ animal cannot hunt for food,​ it​ will be very hungry and tired .​
Again here the​ rattling of​ the​ can with dry food can do the​ trick .​
Even its favorite toy,​ which makes noise,​ can be used .​
Any familiar sound will encourage the​ animal to​ come out of​ the​ hiding .​
the​ recognition of​ the​ rattling of​ the​ can and noise of​ a​ toy should be part of​ the​ training,​ which will be useful in​ such situations .​
In fact,​ the​ animal should be made to​ hear this sound everyday .​
But a​ person should carry out this practice,​ which is​ close to​ the​ pet .​
The same person should try this trick when the​ animal is​ lost,​ as​ the​ pet will not come to​ an​ unknown person .​
Even after all these efforts,​ the​ pet isn’t found; flyers should be distributed in​ the​ neighborhood .​
The flyer should have a​ picture of​ the​ pet,​ its description,​ owner’s contact information and a​ reward if​ any .​
The idea of​ the​ reward,​ even if​ it​ a​ small amount,​ will catch the​ attention of​ many and some might even become proactive members of​ the​ search team .​
If budget allows,​ do print the​ flyer in​ color,​ as​ the​ picture will be more easily recognizable .​
It is​ very important to​ mention that if​ any one sees the​ animal,​ do not try to​ catch it,​ instead the​ owners must be contacted immediately .​
Also,​ medium sized boards similar to​ advertising boards can be put up within a​ radius of​ two miles .​
The words ‘lost pet’ and telephone number should be written in​ big and bold font .​
Other details can be written in​ smaller font .​
When the​ animal is​ found,​ the​ signs should be saved for future use .​
