She ran into my yard on Saturday December 31, around 1pm. I live on Georgia St in Spindale. She is in my fence, but I cannot keep her. Need to find a foster until her owners call or find her a home. The neighbors are complaining about her barking and whining. She looks like a lab mix but not sure. My cell # is 748-0349

The best way to list a Found Pet is much the same as listing a Lost Pet.


If you have found a pet in Rutherford County, the best thing you can do is to get the word out in a hurry. If you have a picture of the found pet, make flyers with large picture of the pet, identifying marks or characteristics. Include the date and place the pet was found. Put them in places like the stores and Post Office near you. Post them at street corners. Call the local vets and describe the pet to them and then take posters for the veterinary offices. Check your flyers regularly to be sure they are still where you placed them and that they remain in good condition.

Also, the Daily Courier will let you place a free ad for several days.

If you wish to have us post information about the found pet, please tell us the pet's name (if known), breed, age, sex, size, where found, any other identifying information, your phone number and email address; and attach any photos. Send this in an email to catlady199@yahoo.com and indicate that this is a Found Pet in the email.

In addition, you may want to post them on: http://lostpetswnc.org
