Report your pet missing to the SPCA on 2232 5553. You can also post information about your missing pet on our Lost and Found Pet website

Post your missing pet on your Facebook page, together with its picture and the location where it went missing. Share with as many friends as possible. Facebook can be one of the most effective ways to find a missing pet, since it alerts pet lovers all over Hong Kong to be on the lookout

Make a poster with images of different, clear angles of your lost pet and put them up in the area where you lost your pet. Make sure that you use recent photos, preferably showing the collar that your pet was wearing when it went missing.

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

Are your records up-to-date?

We often find microchipped pets with outdated or incorrect owner information, making it difficult to locate their owners. This happens when 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 easily contacted by the AFCD if your dog is found.

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