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.

I’m sorry to keep posting so much but I just miss him so much... I’m starting to think someone has him as I haven’t seen him on the roads at all so I’m trying to get the word out as much as I can. It’s been over a month and I hate not having him with me. Any advice would be much appreciated.

Benji is an extremely friendly mini schnauzer beagle mix. He’s tan and gray and about 25lbs. He’s not fixed and was wearing a red collar blue tag when he went missing. He lives right by the high school. Please share and help bring my baby home. 218-760-0080

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

Affectionate and sweet, it's no wonder Effie is a favorite at our Animal House Boarding facility! 😸

Effie has stayed at Animal House since 2009, and the staff absolutely love her. This little cuddle bug can make friends with anyone! During her stays, Effie can often be found roaming the cat room looking for the best napping spot.

Do you have a cat, dog, or critter in need of boarding? Find out more about Animal House at animalhumanesociety.org/animalhouse.
