“Lost” Animals: If you have lost your animal and would like assistance in trying to locate them, please feel free to contact us. We will freely and gladly assist you with flyers, putting you in touch with various animal organizations, being a ‘friend’ to help look you look for your lost pet, posting a notice up on our website etc. Put up flyers all over your neighbourhood, in businesses, in petstores, Veterinarians, to your local bus drivers, cab and utility drivers and mail person. Put ads in the paper, visit all of your local HS, SPCA’s and Shelters. DO not just file a ‘missing’ report with them!
