National Lost Dog Awareness Day

National Lost Dog Awareness Day, observed on April 23rd, serves as a reminder of the importance of responsible pet ownership and the steps we can take to prevent the heartbreaking experience of losing a beloved canine companion. In this blog post, we'll delve into the significance of this day and explore practical tips and resources to help pet parents keep their furry friends safe and secure.

One of the best ways to make sure your precious furry family members can get back to you in the event they get lost, is through proper identification and microchipping. Make sure they have tags with clear contact information to reach you and make sure if your information changes, you change your pup's tags, too. It's also important that if you microchip your fur-babe, to also register them with a national database.

It's also good to have a proactive action plan in place in the event that your pup ever goes missing. In case you don't have it already, always keep a current picture with details about your dog's features (our phone has more pictures of our pup than just about anything else, haha). With apps like Nextdoor and Facebook, it's a good idea to see if anyone has seen your pup and to post pictures. Then, check local animal shelter and veterinary clinics, as well as checking the national database if your doggo is chipped.

We support our local shelters and we recommend you do, too, if that is an option for you. They play a major part in reuniting doggos with their parents. If you can't afford to donate financially, there are options to volunter at the shelter or even fostering a pup if needed.

National Lost Dog Awareness day serves as a reminder of the importance of responsible dog ownership and the steps we can all take to prevent the heartache of losing a beloved fur-baby. Let's unite in our commitment to keeping these precious family members where they belong - at home with their loving owners.
