If your pet is missing we recommend you take the following steps:
Check with your neighbours to make sure your pet is not with them or hiding somewhere, pay particular attention to sheds and garages where your pet may have been accidently trapped.
For dog owners who may have lost their pet whilst out walking, trace the route of your "normal" walk.
Advise your vet, plus local rescue centres and charities in your area.
Put up simple signs around your local area asking for help in locating your pet, include a photo and a description.
