Losing a pet is a horrible thing. This page is meant to help people get a start on finding their beloved pet! Or, if you've found someone else's pet, you can post here to try to reach an owner. Please remember to add dates to postings.
Due to the number of missing pets, those who have been missing for one year or longer may be moved to the Lost Pets Archive page.
In addition, it helps to be proactive! Don't let your pet outside unsupervised in the first place (especially rabbits, with the heat and predators and read here why you shouldn't let your cat outside). Whether they are indoor or outdoor, you should have your pet implanted with a small microchip. Although you cannot track a missing pet with a microchip, a person will likely contact a local animal humane society, shelter, animal hospital, etc., and one of the first things they will do is scan the animal to see if there's a microchip implanted, which will have all the relevant information to return your pet to you! This costs only $45 (plus an office visit) at the VMTH, and can be done by most veterinarians, and is highly recommended! Some people with indoor cats keep a breakaway collar on them just in case they slip out. It helps to engrave "indoor cat" along with contact information so whoever finds them knows they are lost rather than just wandering.

Adding a Lost/Found Pet Listing to DavisWiki
You'll need to login, add your listing by editing the page, then preview and save your edit.
New to DavisWiki? To add a listing you'll need to sign up for a username. It's quick and easy...click on the new user link at the top of the page.
After you login, click on Edit.
Locate the =List of lost or found pets= heading in the editor window. There are some instructions there. In a nutshell:
Add your listing below the heading. It's easiest to simply copy and edit one of the previous listings for your own, or follow these steps:
Add a title for your listing by placing double "equals" signs on either side. Examples:
==LOST DOG: mm/dd/yy. "Snoopy". Beagle. White with black ears and black nose.==
==FOUND CAT: mm/dd/yy. All black with white paws==
Add an image if possible. Look at the examples for how to place the images so they look nice. See Help with Images for more info. Examples:
[[Image(snoopy1.jpg, thumbnail, 400, left)]]
[[Image(blackcatfound_jan7_2013.jpg, thumbnail, 400, left)]]
Add information about the pet below the image (or title if no image): a detailed description, where and when last seen (or found), your contact info, etc.
Add separator lines, one line of four equal signs "====" and one line of four minus signs "----". This keeps your entry visually separated from the next one.
When your pet makes it home, be sure to come back and remove the listing or move it to Success Stories page!
What Else You Can Do
When you first lose (or find) a pet, here are some practical first steps you should take:
Visit the Yolo County Animal Shelter (where your pet will likely end up if it is taken to the police, or if somebody finds it) in Woodland at 2640 E. Gibson Rd. It is open Tuesday-Saturday 10-6, closed for lunch 1-2 and closed on Sundays and Mondays. A shelter employee will gather information on your pet and walk you through the shelter to see if your pet is there. You may also file a lost-report at this location, complete with pictures if you have them. Your lost report will be on file with the SPCA on-site employee and will be checked with every animal brought into the shelter. They can also scan animals to check for microchips, so knowing your pet's microchip number is handy.
Call the Yolo County SPCA at 758-7722 and provide a detailed description of your pet. If you have digital photos of your pet, you can email these to a SPCA representative.
Post fliers within a 3-block radius from your home or last seen location and talk to your neighbors directly.
Call the Davis Police Department at their non-emergency number (530)747-5400 (The people who found our dog called the Police Department).
In addition to the Davis Wiki, post ads in Craig's List, Davis Enterprise, Petfinder and Pet Harbor. Someone also formed a facebook group. Members include YSPCA and UCD VMTH as well as several area vets. Please join this group and check it often so that it can be an effective community resource.
Post a flier at Petco's bulletin board and other pet stores.
If you lost a cat, realize that the cat may be hiding during the day due to all the commotion and dogs being walked outside. Go out at night when it is quiet and call your cat's name. You may find that the cat has been hiding in the neighborhood nearby. They often don't go very far.
Call all of the animal clinics in Davis- people bring and report found animals often.
If you FOUND a pet, take it to a veterinarian to get it scanned for a microchip.
Remember that found cats may not be lost! DO NOT take them to the shelter. They have a high kill rate there, and if the cat is an outdoor cat they can't walk home from inside a cage.
GOOD LUCK everyone, and don't give up!!!
