Pet FBI "Special Agent" Teresa Scores Another Recovery!
Nike and Niko: Lost Dogs Recovered By Pet FBI “Special Agent” Teresa
These two fellas had a quick reunion shortly after being posted on Pet FBI Ohio thanks to our very own "special agent", pal and frequent hero, Teresa!
Teresa lives in the area where they were missing so she hopped in the car to look for them. Teresa often follows a hunch when deciding where to drive and it paid off again today! The boys were trotting along dangerously close to a busy road when Teresa pulled over. She called for them, they ran to her and then hopped in her car!
You, Too Can Become a Pet FBI “Special Agent”! Here are some things anyone can do to get lost pets back home without officially volunteering:
- Keep an eye out for lost pets in your neighborhood. Follow the database for reports close to your zip to see what pets have gone missing in your area. If you are in Ohio, follow our Pet FBI Ohio Facebook page. (opens new window)
- Be a cross-checker! Some people post a lost or found report in one place, like Craigslist or Facebook and stop there. They have heard of these big sites, but they don’t know about Pet FBI or any other web database. If you are have a good memory or a good system, you may be able to match up lost and found reports from various sites!
- If you live near a pound or a shelter, you could volunteer to be the “go-to” lost and found person. Follow postings for lost and found pets on Pet FBI and various other resources and look for a match at the shelter. (This kind of thing is not high priority at most shelters where volunteers have all to do to care for the many animals.)
- When you see a lost/found flyer around town, contact the people to tell them about Pet FBI.
- Print out some Pet FBI flyers (opens new window) and post them in pet supply stores, convenience stores, community bulletin boards, etc. Just carry some around with you in your purse or in your car and post them when you come across a public bulletin board. Be sure to ask for permission if required.
- Mention Pet FBI to your vet, your groomer, or your pet sitter. Ask them to post a Pet FBI flyer (opens new window) so people learn about it.
