If your animal has been permanently marked with a microchip, your task is much easier! Here is what you should do:
1. Check if the animal is registered in a national database partnered with WORLDPETNET.
- If you have not registered the animal yet, you should do it as soon as possible! Having a microchip is not enough to identify your pet and enable it to return home.
- Verify that the data you provided during the registration process is still up to date. Make sure that the phone number provided is your current phone number and that you have attached photos of your pet to help potential finders identify it.
2. Report the incident using the ALERT PET IS LOST function.
3. Post a missing pet ad. It is also a good idea to make posts on special groups on social media (Facebook, forums).
4. Visit your local veterinary clinics; inform veterinarians about your pet going missing, leave printed ads with your pet's photos, microchip number and your contact data.
5. Report your missing pet to the local authorities responsible for animal welfare and your local animal shelters.
6. Check classified advertisements websites and be on the lookout for animals for sale. Remember that not every finder is an honest person, and purebred animals are often stolen with intent to profit! In addition, you may also find an ad posted by your pet's finder!
