Start searching immediately

  • Get the word out. As soon as you are aware that your pet is missing, call the Redwood Coast Humane Society and county Animal Control to report your lost pet. Tell friends, neighbors, local kids, etc.
  • Canvas your neighborhood during the day and at night. Look in garages, yards, basements, closets, under cars, in shrubbery, and at your neighbor's homes as well as your own.
  • Call and whistle to your pet. She may be injured, frightened, trapped or unable to come to you. Hearing your voice may encourage your pet to answer you. Remain in one place long enough for your pet to find you after you call. The best time to call for your pet is at night, and at dawn when its quiet outside and your pet may feel safer to come out of hiding.
