Bemidji Area lost and found animals

LOST: Means you are LOOKING for an animal FOUND: Means you have found an animal IF YOU HAVE FOUND A PET: ACT IMMEDIATELY, TIME IS CRITICAL SECURE THE PET. CRATE THE CAT OR DOG, OR SECURELY LEASH THE DOG. Provide water to the pet who may have been missing for hours. Walk around the neighborhood, knock on doors, asking neighbors if they know the pet’s owner. ASK EVERYONE YOU SEE IF THEY KNOW WHO OWNS THE FOUND PET: the postman, newspaper deliverer, meter reader, pool cleaners, gardeners, trash collectors, school crossing guards. TAKE THE PET TO A VETERINARY OFFICE AND ASK THEM TO CHECK FOR A MICROCHIP. They can assist you in calling the 24 hour hotline for the microchip company, which can provide the owner’s contact information. POST FLIERS WITH A BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE FOUND PET AND YOUR TELEPHONE NUMBER. DO NOT INCLUDE SEX OF THE DOG OR OTHER DETAILS SO THE REAL OWNER CAN IDENTIFY THESE DETAILS TO YOU. List only a brief description of the pet, and the city found in. Leave out certain identifying information about the pet, so the rightful owner can prove ownership. MAKE THE CALLER IDENTIFY THE PET. Ask them to identify the pet accurately: if the pet had a collar, the color of the collar, if a male pet was neutered, colors, markings, unusual characteristics (missing eye, etc). Require that they give you their veterinarian’s phone number to call to verify that they own the found pet. Ask to meet them at their vet’s office. If they cannot describe the pet accurately, cannot provide a veterinary contact, and cannot provide photos of the pet as proof of ownership, they are most likely not the pet’s owner! BEWARE OF THOSE WHO POSE AS OWNERS TO OBTAIN FREE PETS FOR INHUMANE REASONS. There are people in Our area who pretend to be the pet’s owner, but instead sell the pet to “bunchers” collecting animals for sale to research labs. Special purebreds are also at risk for con artists calling to get an expensive purebred as their own so they can use them for breeding. Others use free pets for bait in dog fights or sadistic rituals. NEVER respond to a caller alone. Take someone with you and arrange to meet in a public place, not your home, preferably their vet’s office.

Tony went missing from Cass Lake Minnesota earlier in February. We have not been able to locate him. We are hoping that someone has taken him in and just cannot find his owners. Please share this flyer if you are able.

There was a post (and signs around) for a tan and black dog that was missing. What kind of dog? Pics? We have seen a wandering dog near Nary. Wondering if it was yours.


Lost Dogs Minnesota

We are an all volunteer group committed to reuniting families with their lost dogs. This service is provided free to dog families, shelters/rescues and animal control professionals. We are strictly an online forum providing the means for families of lost dogs and finders to post and match up dogs to get them home. We do not have possession of any animals and do not assist in placing them. We are not affiliated with any animal control agencies, rescue groups or humane societies, but support their efforts and many support our site as well. Mission * Reunite families with their dogs * Reduce the number of "strays" in shelters. * Protect lost dogs from injury. * Protect the public from traffic accidents caused by loose dogs. * Educate the public on effective methods of finding lost dogs. Description The dogs family members, or approved representatives are asked to complete a lost dog report form, and finders of lost dogs are asked to complete a found dog report form, which grants us permission to share that information on the Lost Dogs of Minnesota Facebook page. This page also offers resources and educational tips for finding lost dogs and tips to help reunite found dogs with their families. Phone Number: (612) 642-1364

Minnesota got a lot of snow overnight and the wind is picking up today! Be sure when you are snowblowing you don't pile all the snow in front of the fence building your dog a ramp to get out! The wind can also do this so check your yard quick before letting your dog out!

It's a fact: spaying and neutering saves lives! 😸🐶 February is Spay/Neuter Awareness Month, and we want to give a shout out to our Kindest Cut clinic! Last year, Kindest Cut performed 11,627 spay/neuter surgeries at its brick-and-mortar clinic in Golden Valley and mobile truck serving the Twin Cities metro. Kindest Cut gives low-income pet owners, animals rescue organizations, and feral cat caretakers the chance to have their animals fixed for a fraction of what the procedure typically costs. Their efforts help reduce pet overpopulation, and we're happy we can offer their services to the community! 🐾

To learn more about Kindest Cut, check out this article by our friends at Sidewalk Dog Media!

When you lose a pet, nothing can replace what they once meant to you. ❤️ But eventually, we find it in our hearts to welcome a new animal into our lives. Nicole's adoption story honors the two special cats she's adopted from AHS, one who has crossed the rainbow bridge and the other who she's still getting to know. #SuccessStorySaturday

"I just wanted to express my appreciation for Animal Humane Society. In 2015, my family and I adopted a 9-year-old cat named Roxy. We adopted her one month after my brother was murdered. She was the first cat I had had since childhood and she became my 'therapy' cat. About 2 years after adopting her, she began having significant health problems. After 6 months of trying to help her and extend her life, I had to make the difficult decision of having her put down. It was pretty difficult for me. I still have a hard time considering that decision.

"The house felt incredibly empty after saying goodbye to Roxy. My husband talked me into checking out the St. Paul Humane Society site the day after Roxy died. We found Iris, a 5-month-old kitten. She’s quite different from Roxy, but she fits so well with our family. It’s a different relationship, and I am so happy to have her in our lives.

"I just wanted to share because I am so happy with my pets. And I wouldn’t have had them without Animal Humane Society. So, thank you. The black and white cat is Roxy. The tabby is Iris."

UPDATE: I’m on hold for adoption! Woo hoo!!

Hi guys! It's Chase. I hacked into this Facebook page because I'm still waiting for a family and I hope someone will see this awesome selfie I took and fall for my devilish good looks. 😎 Just kidding, I have a pretty great personality too! I get a little overexcited about life sometimes, but I'm actually a calm and cuddly boy once you give me a chance! I will even put up with whatever bad reality TV show you're into right now (is it the Bachelor? This season stinks...) just for a chance to snuggle with you on the couch! OK, I think I'm out of time, somebody's coming... but please visit me this weekend! I'm at something called "Golden Valley" and on the internet here: ahs.mn/MeetChase

xoxo Chase, certified Very Good Boy.
