5. Put posters up in appropriate places in the area where you lost your pet. Make sure that you use the most recent photos, preferably showing the collar that your pet was wearing when it went missing. Use clear photos preferably showing all angles of your pet.

6. Notify your local veterinary surgeons and other local animal rescue organisations.

ARE YOUR RECORDS UP TO DATE?

The SPCA often finds microchipped pets with outdated or incorrect owner information, making it difficult to locate their owners.

Often, owners forget to transfer ownership of the dog license from the pet shop where they bought their dog or neglect to inform the AFCD when they move house or change telephone number.

If your dog was given to you by a friend, please ensure that the license is also transferred to your name, so you can be contacted easily by the AFCD should your dog be found.

If you have not done so yet, you may have to ask the person who your dog is still licensed under to enquire on your behalf at the AFCD.
