Finding Lost Pets
Losing a pet can be a heartbreaking experience that devastates entire families. Keep medical history and information about medical conditions with you at all times, always have current photos of your pet and be able to describe coat color/markings.
Take steps to protect your pets from loss and pet theft seizures. If you experience a loss or theft, or know someone who does, help support them in finding their lost pet.
Officials at the American Kennel Club have been paying particular attention to stolen dog reports made by owners about dogs stolen from cars, yard and homes. Since January 2011, the number of pet thefts has increased 49% over the previous year. Dog Thefts Are Way Up -- Do You Know How to Protect Your Pet recommends that unique microchip serial numbers and your dog's description be posted in the FBI's National Crime Information Center database under "stolen articles." Other specific prevention tips for pet owners include:
Use a Leash
When owners use a leash for their pets at all times abduction risks can be reduced. Pets on a leash will remain closer to you. You can see who is near your pet and quickly move your pet to safety if needed. Leashes are a primary measure of safety for your pet. It's quick and easy to go without them, but they can prevent a pet theft when used. Be consistent with your leash use so your pet can know to "get dressed" and remain in close proximity to you.
Don't Share Information
Sharing information about your habits, living situation, home location, vehicle or family can increase your pet's vulnerability during your absence. Playing at the beach, dog park or neighborhood park can expose your dog to others that are interested in it. Special skills your dog has or endearing habits in a pricy breed may increase threat opportunities. Know who you're sharing your information with.
Dog Friendly Shopping
Your dog is vulnerable to pet theft when you tie it outside a store, restaurant or shop while you make purchases inside. Make your purchases at dog-friendly stores. Enjoy your meals at restaurants that encourage pets and people to mix during meals.
Tend to Outdoor Pets
When you leave your animals unattended in their yards you can often have a false sense of your pet's safety. Animals that are always outside and visible to others for long stretches of time can become vulnerable to pet theft. Fences can be scaled, broken into or cut to gain access to your family's beloved pet.
Eliminate Locked Vehicles
It will only take you a minute to run into the store or service station or retrieve your briefcase from the office where you forgot it. In that same minute, your pet can be stealthily removed from your car. Vulnerable pets, like electronics equipment in vehicles, can be easily spotted in parked vehicles. They immediately become sitting ducks to would-be thieves. Thieves "won't hesitate to steal a dog right out of a locked car," says pet safety company owner Ines de Pablo.

I moved to the Bay Area with my cat, Buddy, in the Summer of 2015. After going to the same veterinarian for nearly my entire life, I was very anxious about finding a new vet which I could trust to take care of my cat. The vet staff at Pet's Friend Animal Clinic are wonderful! I have now taken Buddy here twice, both times to see Dr. Allison Moore. You can tell that she, and the rest of the staff, truly care about you and your animal. I'm very relieved to have found this exceptional clinic, and I plan to continue taking my cat here for the foreseeable future!
We have been taking our doggie girls to Pet's Friends since they opened. Although there have been many changes over the years, the loving care they have given our dogs, myself, and wife has always been consistent. That's because you can tell they love animals and want to help them live a long, happy, and healthy life. The Doctors are special - they take time to explain medical process, explain options to us, and really listen to our concerns. The Pet's Friends' staff treats us like family. The staff provides more than just administrative and technical support to the Doctors - they provide a professional atmosphere of confidence while making everyone feel at home. I would not hesitate recommending them to my friends.
