It is never an easy time when a pet goes missing. Knowing who to contact and where to look is always daunting. We have come across a new service which appears to help www.trackacat.com. For a small fee they will take your pets details and then contact all the local bodies around you who may have had contact with your pet. They are also developing and iPhone app to help spread the word too. It is always worth leaving your details with us directly too but we are now recommending using this service too.
Found a pet?
For stray cats:
The RSPCA advice is to make sure they are healthy and if they are leave the cat where it is found, as cats are much better at find their own way home than owners are at coming forward. If the cat doesn’t go home with in 12-24hours or if the cat is ill or distressed in anyway please ring the RSPCA on 0300 1234 999 to get a log number, then we can accept the cat and provide any urgent care it may need. We will then register the cat with www.trackacat.com for you.
For stray dogs:
The dog warden is responsible for dogs locally and provides a kennel for them, making them the focus for re-homing dogs locally. We can accept then here but we will need to contact the dog warden for them to be collected is we can’t find a microchip or contact details.
The dogs warden’s details can be found here: Sheffield City Council Website - Lost and Found Dogs
If the dog is ill or distressed in anyway please ring the RSPCA on 0300 1234 999 to get a log number, then we can accept the dog and provide any urgent care it may need. We will then register the dog with www.trackacat.com for you.
