If your pet does not have a microchip, the situation becomes more complicated, but do not give up – there are still ways you can help:
1. Report your missing pet to the local authorities responsible for animal welfare and your local animal shelters.
2. Regularly check the place where you lost your pet or places where it could find shelter, such as the place where you take it out for a walk.
3. Post a missing pet ad in your local newspaper and on your social media profiles, especially in groups for animals. It is also a good idea to put up posters on notice boards in your area and in the area your pet went missing.
4. Visit your local veterinary clinics; inform veterinarians about your pet going missing, leave printed ads with your pet's photos, a detailed description of its appearance and your contact data.
5. Regularly contact your local animal shelters to check if they have not found your pet, leave them your contact information.
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 sometimes stolen with intent to profit! It is also possible that the person who has found your pet will post a classified ad looking for the owner.
