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 iunstructions there. In a nutshell:
Add your listing below the heading. It's easiest to simply copy and edit one of the examples, 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-Friday from 10am-1pm and 2-6pm, and open Saturdays from 10am-1pm and 2-4pm. They are closed Sundays and open for limited services (no adoptions) on Monday from 1-5PM. A shelter employee will have you file a lost report 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, please bring a printed photo if you can. Your lost report will be on file with the SPCA office there, and will be checked with every animal brought into the shelter. They will also scan animals to check for microchips, so knowing your pet's microchip number is handy, in addition to having the registration information up to date..
Call the Yolo County SPCA at 530-662-8858 and provide a detailed description of your pet. If you have digital photos of your pet, you can email these to a SPCA representative to firstname.lastname@example.org
Post fliers within at least 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 and animal shelter employees. 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, along with coffee shops and stories where people visit often (libraries, Target, schools, etc).
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. There are excellent cat-finding tips for a variety of cat personalities at Cat's In The Bag.
Call all of the veterinary 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.
10. If you can't care for it, take it to the Yolo County Animal Shelter
GOOD LUCK everyone, and don't give up!!!
List of lost or found pets
FOUND DOG: 2/14/14. small, black with some white in chest
LOST CAT: 2/12/14. Female, all grey long hair, green eyes.
Lost in Davis, CA on West 8th between Miller and Eureka Dr. She got out and bolted after hearing a noise. I recently adopted her and am worried she does not know her way back. She may have a pink collar on and she is microchipped. Her stomach is shaved as she was recently spayed. She is extremely friendly, but may be scared of quick movements or loud noises. Contact Christine at 925-360-1992 or email@example.com
FOUND DOG: 2/10/14. Brindle hound, male
LOST DOG: 2/2/14. "Marilyn". Beagle. Brown and White
SPOTTED SIX CATS: 1/10/14 - 1/14/2014. Cat colony at east end of Arboretum
While biking the Davis Loop, I spotted these two cat friends, who were relaxing together in the sun. Are they wild, are they lost, are they at home around there? I don't know. But maybe somebody recognizes them as their own? It was at the end of the Arboretum towards 'Rocknasium'. It's directly behind the new location of the Davis Flea Market. Come to think of it, on another point of the Davis bike loop, maybe a couple of weeks ago, loop I saw a very sad, light haired cat, he was incredibly! lean, you saw all his bones :-(, and exhausted. I didn't know what to do, as I don't want to catch a cat like that (we can't take a cat in our house). I mention this, because I think it's very sad that people lose their cats like that. Because I bike a lot in Davis (about 4- 5 times a week) I see cats without identification all the time and I think it's better to keep them inside. Better for the birds as well. I think it should be enforced by law that all cats wear identification.
Tail piece 1/13/2014
Today when I biked by again, I saw the two cat friends again, now cozy socializing in the pipe, and a third, gray cat was joining them. Obviously these cats live here, so anybody looking for them, can find them here.
Tail Piece 2 - 1/14/2014
I biked by again and this time had my Canon with me. Unfortunately, no sharp photos again. It's like I thought, there are even more cats living there in a group. I took photos of 6 different ones (see all pics and compare closely) now. I suspect there even are more than six. I will keep an eye on them. These cats look good enough, but wear no identification and are very on their guard. Who knows if they belong to somebody?
There have been feral cats living there for ever and a day, they want nothing to do with humans. totally feral. Some of them have punched ears, others don't. The kittens have gotten bigger as well, they are almost cats now. ~SD
- @ SD: Ah, so you knew abut this place? But what about the all grey cat (pic 2, 5 and 6) and the very big cat (in pic 3); could it be that they have joined the group? I see two cats in the 'Lost' section with the names "Nugget" and "Belchik", and it could well be them? CO
Two wild or stray cats? Sorry, no sharp photo, taken with HTC phone - 1/10/2014 Three wild or stray cats? Sorry, no sharp photo, taken with HTC phone - 1/13/2014 Two wild or stray cats? Sorry, no sharp photo, taken with Canon - 1/14/2014
