Help If You Find a Stray - In the past, it was standard practice for lost pets to be brought into the shelter. However, we now know they have a much better chance of getting back home if some actions are taken in the neighborhoods where they're found, before they are brought to a shelter. In fact, the typical reclaim rate for lost pets is only 17% when a pet comes into the shelter. But when a pet is kept in a safe place in the neighborhood where they were found, that rate jumps to 70%. If you have a found an animal and it's possible, we ask that you do not remove the animal from its neighborhood. Please report the information through PawBoost and Lost.petcolove.org.
