Lost Dog - Snoopy

Lost Dog Snoopy Lost Dog Snoopy Snoopy

My Jack Russell, Snoopy, has been missing since about 7:00 AM Thursday 5-18-17.  I live on Maple St near the hospital in Rutherfordton.  He ran out in the street to bark at some dogs that were going by & was hit by a car.  He was scared & ran away towards the hospital, he was last seen running up the entrance to the hospital parking lot.  He only has a bark collar on because a neighbor in our apartments complained & his tags were on his regular collar.  He is about 9 years old & has been fixed.  His ears & tail HAVE NOT been cropped & he is a long legged Jack, not the smaller compact one.  He is mostly white with brown spots. My cell number is 404-425-3257, please, please if anyone has seen my baby please call or text me!!

Lost Cat, Myra

September 2, 2016
My barn cat Myra has been missing for 2 weeks now, I just assumed something had happened to her, since she never goes anywhere, but I thought about the possibility of someone thinking she was homeless if she wandered up to the road. She is about 3 years old, has had 2 litters but is now spayed. She is quite small, and probably weighs less than 10 lbs. She is dark brown, lighter on her belly sometimes. She gets ulcers on her mouth sometimes. Very sweet and loving, isn’t very fond of being picked up though. She does not have a collar but does have a chip!! I live on 530 Cedar Creek Rd, Lake Lure. Please call Natalie Phillips at 828-674-2821 or 828-625-0979 if you have her or have seen her, she is very missed.





What to do to find your pet:

If you have lost 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 your pet, make flyers with large print of pet's name, identifying marks or characteristics. Include the date and place your pet was last seen. Put them in places like the stores and Post Office near you. Post them at street corners. Call the local vets and describe your 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.
