Lost and Found Pets

Tips for finding a lost pet:

  • First thoroughly search your property and neighborhood on foot. (checking under porches, under vehicles, in sheds & garages, drainage pipes and any other possible hiding places)
  • Create a lost pet flyer and post your flyers in the area where the pet was lost. (Ask permission to post the signs and please remove them when your pet is found.)
  • Check the newspaper under lost/found. Put a lost pet ad in the classified section of the newspaper.
  • Give a flyer to your local postal carrier.


Forsyth County Animal Control

FCAC has a lost and found page on their website. These lists can be searched and a posting can be made for either a lost or found animal. You can also visit FCAC to view animals on stray hold. We suggest visiting them at least three times a week until your pet is found. They will not tell you over the telephone if there is a pet matching that description. Visit surrounding county shelters. Pets can travel up to 7 miles a day. - click on Lost & Found

Lost Dog Behavior – Pet FBI

Be sure to search all animal shelters (there may be more than one) within your area. It is difficult to predict how far lost dogs will travel because there are just too many variables. The distance that a lost dog will travel depends upon its individual temperament, the environment (terrain and weather), and the circumstances surrounding the disappearance. The question to ask when searching for a missing dog is “Who has my dog?” One complicating factor with lost dogs is that people who pick up stray dogs often transport them out of the immediate search area. Because a large amount of lost dogs end up in foster homes and rescue adoption programs, you should contact all rescue groups and breed rescue groups within your area (Use a search engine and the keywords “animal rescue groups near [your city]”). Animal shelters and dog rescue groups are a high probability search area for a lost dog.
