According to the U.S. Census the average American will move 12 times in their life. This means that many people do not know where their local shelter is when their dog goes missing. Factor in that dogs (unlike car keys) do not remain where they are lost. They have four legs and walk so may easily end up in a neighboring county or jurisdiction.
Please help anyone you know who is missing their dog by giving them the locations of the shelters and animal control facilities in all surrounding towns and counties. Also remember that many town offices, police departments and vet clinics (especially in smaller communities) impound lost pets. Thank you for helping us help others!
