Found a Pet?

Thank you for being a Kind Human and reaching out to help reunite a lost pet with their pet parent.

Being lost is devastating, for the pet and the pet parent.

They will be forever grateful for your assistance!



First things first

  • Evaluate the situation for safety. A scared, injured or sick pet may behave unpredictably. Any sudden moves may scare the animal, causing her to run into traffic or even attack you.
  • If the animal looks or acts threatening, or if you feel uneasy, stay away and inform your local animal control.
  • If the pet is approachable, use caution and common sense.
  • Speak in a soothing voice, and reassure him.
  • Make sure the animal can see you at all times as you approach, and entice her to come to you by offering a piece of food or a treat, and some water.
  • If you’re able to approach and secure the animal, check for a collar tag with the pet parent’s phone number.
  • If the pet is wearing one, that’s awesome! Simply contact the pet parent.


No Phone Number? What's next?

  • If the pet has a collar tag with a microchip registry phone number and a code of any kind; call the microchip registry, tell them you found a pet and read them the code.
  • You can also check for a collar tag with a license, or rabies number.
  • If there is no collar tag, look for a tattoo. Common places for ID tattoos are on the belly or inner thigh or perhaps inside one of the pet’s ears.
  • If you find any of these numbers, enter them in the Pet ID searches below.
  • If the search is successful, follow the instructions for contact. If the pet is registered with BeKind PetFind, great!
  • Call us at 1-800-Info-PET (800-463-6738).

No Tags, Nada.

  • If the pet is not wearing ID tags and does not have a tattoo:
    • Take the pet to a nearby shelter, humane society, or veterinarian and have the pet scanned to see if it has a microchip.
    • The facility may have you call us at 1‑800‑Info‑PET (800‑463‑6738), or they can assist you in locating the pet parent.

Being kind has benefits for you too!

Recent research was conducted at the University of California Riverside. Students were assigned to complete five random acts of kindness per week for six weeks.

The result? Their levels of happiness increased by 41.66 percent!

Being kind has a significant positive effect. So, make kindness a habit, and you’ll be happier too!
