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.

If you wish to have us post information about your pet, please tell us the pet's name, breed, age, sex, size, where last seen, any other identifying information, your phone number and email address; and attach any photos. Send this in an email to catlady199@yahoo.com.


Advertise in the Lost and Found column of The Daily Courier and Rutherford Weekly.

Borrow a humane trap if your pet has been sited in a certain area. Check the trap frequently and keep fresh food in the trap.
