WHAT TO DO
WHEN YOUR PET GOES MISSING
othing can be more upsetting than finding your pet not at home or where you expect to find them. It’s a sinking and frantic feeling when a pet goes missing but where do you start? Sometimes people feel that their pets will come back on their own but why not get the word out as soon as possible? Using that method along with some basic tools may help a quick reunion happen with your pet. ID Tags and Microchipping When you first adopt your pet, one of the first things WAIF recommends is getting an ID tag for your pet. This should include your pet’s name, your contact information, and if you have one, a microchip number. A microchip is a great secondary means of protection but in order to be effective it needs to be registered with the microchip manufacturer. Since the microchip is inserted by a veterinarian, they can guide you on how to register the microchip properly. If the collar or ID tag falls off your pet, microchipping is a great back-up plan should your pet go missing. If you don’t register the chip, there’s no information that will direct your pet back to you.
Licensing Your Pet Licensing your pet is another way to support efforts to quickly bring home your pets. Not only is it the law but it also quickly identifies (through a license number) that your pet is up to date on rabies vaccinations. Good Samaritans will be much more likely to handle and temporarily care for your pet if they know that it is healthy and up to date with rabies vaccinations. Licenses need to be renewed annually and the fees typically range from $10 to $35 (for altered or unaltered pets). Licenses are good only for the calendar year in which they are purchased. For example, if you purchase a license in January 2017, the license expires December 2017. If you purchase a license in November 2017, it will expire December 2017. Be sure to make it a resolution in the new year to get your pet licensed! County licenses for dogs can be purchased in-person at the following locations: WAIF Shelter in Coupeville WAIF Oak Harbor Cat Adoption Center City of Oak Harbor Animal Holding Facility Animal Hospital By The Sea Whidbey Pet Directory

Oak Harbor, licenses are required for dogs as well as cats. Steps to Take in Locating Your Lost Pet One of the most vital steps you can take in reuniting with your pet is getting the word out within 24 hours. The following suggestions will increase the likelihood of a fast reunion. Contact Animal Control. For the north end of Whidbey (Oak Harbor & Coupeville), call the nonemergency ICOM Dispatch line at 360-679-9567. Those in Greenbank, Freeland, Langley, and Clinton, call 360-3214400. Contact WAIF. Many people will take a lost pet to a local animal shelter such as WAIF. During our daily business hours of 9am-4pm, call 360-678-8900 ext. 1100 so that WAIF animal care staff can take an official lost & found report. Strays are held for a minimum of six days in Oak Harbor and five days in Island County before becoming available for adoption. If your pet has been found, let us know so we can update our records. Leave something with your scent. This may work especially with dogs. If you have an idea of where they went missing, consider placing a recently worn item with some water near by. If your dog is crate-trained, 2017
you may want to consider leaving their crate out with familiar bedding if there’s a safe place to do so. Spread the word through social media. Facebook is a great tool where you can post a recent picture of your lost pet while providing a detailed description. You may even want to create a page specifically for your lost pet. Ask your friends to share your post or page. You can also share the link on our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/waif. animals. However, this does not negate the need to call WAIF to place a lost report.
Facebook is not an official means of reporting your lost pet to WAIF. Alert your neighbors and friends via email, phone, and in-person. Posters and flyers. Make sure you take recent photos of your pets should they become missing. Include the most recent photo(s) in your flyer with a basic description and contact information. Keep it simple with a large font for better readability. You’ll want to put these up right away and in proximity of where your pet went missing. Many businesses CONTINUED ON 6
