If you find a pet, take to any vet and they will scan for a microchip for free.

If no chip, or for a lost pet:

Call all the local shelters (

Pinellas County
listed at bottom of this email) and nearby vet offices immediately to leave a description.  Also, if possible, go to the shelters and vets with a photo.

Hang flyers all over the area with a good photo, description and your phone #.

List on these sites:
1)  Pinellas County Sheriff's Office -   http://www.pcsoweb.com/cares/

2)  Craig's List - Don't try to sell or give away pets here.  But it's a good place for lost and found animals.

3)  Tampa Bay Times and Tampa Tribune will list a found pet for free for several days.  You have to call, you can't do it online.  Also there will be a few days delay before it's in the paper.

If you found

a
pet, leave something about him/her out in the description so you can use it to make sure anyone claiming to be the owner is legitimate.

Shelters to call and/ or visit in Pinellas County:
1)  Pinellas County Animal Services, [masked] -   http://www.pinellascounty.org/animalservices

2)  SPCA Largo, [masked] -   http://www.spcatampabay.org/

3)  Humane Society of Pinellas, [masked] -   www.humanesocietyofpinellas.org

4)  Pet Pal Animal Shelter, [masked] -    petpalanimalshelter.com

5)  Suncoast Animal League, [masked] -   www.suncoastanimalleague.net

6)  Friends of Strays, [masked] -   www.friendsofstrays.com

That's just my 2 cents worth.  :)

Thanks,
Andrea Barlow
