A cage latch may not be secure or a collar not tight enough.
New people like baby sitters, pet sitters or even friends unintentionally provide escape opportunity right past their legs as they enter a home.
One of the biggest mistakes is thinking we have established a strong bond with a new or rescued pet in a short amount of time. Even to pets we have a long standing connection with, they can be so overwhelmed to their senses when exposed to new environments, they only see a chance to explore or flee. We at LPTD see it so often (after all, it's what we do!) that we have compiled a few tips to help keep you and your furry friends together:
Ensure your equipment is working properly and can handle any abuse from a frightened, stressed or otherwise active pet. Make sure collars are snug (cannot even be close to slipping over the head!) and have all information needed to return the pet to you should it become lost. We recommend collars with metal buckles (plastic can and does break!)
Have an updated picture of your pet that is clear and defined. Posters often make the difference in locating a lost pet so your picture should be as current as possible. Take a new picture at least once a month.
Make sure your pet is microchipped. If a kind citizen finds your lost pet and takes it to a local shelter, the first thing they are likely to do is scan for a chip to find the owner!
Have a specific scent article in the unfortunate event that your pet does become lost. This should be something no other pet has used. We will have a follow up post on Specific Scent Kits.s
