Finding a Lost Pet with Social Media

Social media is one of the fastest ways to get word out that your pet is lost. A well-designed

post will be shared more, and hopefully get your pet found! Remember that social media is just

one of many tools that you should be using to find a lost pet.

9 steps for an effective post:

1. Post the town, state, and nearest crossroads where pet was last seen. Your social

media post may travel far and wide. When people see a lost pet from their area, they’re

more likely to read and remember your post.

2. Post a good quality picture of your pet, or post several photos to give a good idea of

what your pet looks like. i.e. markings, size, color.

3. Include a contact phone number that people can call if your pet is spotted, or found.

4. Make sure your post is public! Check your post settings and make sure your friends will

be able to share it… the more people that see it, the better the odds that your pet will

be found.

5. Include the last date your pet was seen.

6. Include the approximate size and weight of your pet.

7. Include the gender. Is it a female/male and , neutered/unaltered?

8. Include info about your pet’s temperament. Is it Skittish or fearful? Friendly?

9. Post updates if/when the animal is spotted.

Please delete your post if/when your pet is found.

This keeps pages uncluttered for other people

that are searching for their lost pets.
