ECHS does not accept stray dogs or cats. These steps will help to ensure you have done everything you can to help the wayward dog or cat you have found.
- Report the lost pet to your local animal control to make sure you are in accordance with any local laws
- Take the pet to a veterinarian, animal control or humane society to be scanned for a microchip. All places should do this for you at no cost.
- Print large flyers and place at intersections and highly visible places in the vicinity of where the pet was found
- Post a found ad on any facebook page for your city or county. We suggest “Eaton County Lost And Found Pets” if you are in the Eaton County. Also search and post on craigslist or any other local social media pages you can find
Once you have completed all these steps, check with your local animal control for legal holding times before you are able to make further decisions for the lost pet.
