Search the neighborhood:

Your pets must have mostly wandered off in the nearest neighborhood and must have lost its way so gather up your friends and search the entire neighborhood.

If the pet is in your neighborhood, then it must most likely come back to your house in a few days.


You can make small posters with the picture of your pet in the poster. You can also say that your pet is missing for these many days and you are not able to find it in the nearby environment. So if someone happens to find a pet with similar features, they can contact you. You can also give out some rewards to those who bring back your pet. But sometimes some people falsely say that they have found your pet just for your reward and never give you your pet.  You must be careful with such people.

Post on the internet:

Nothing spreads faster than a post which is posted on the internet. You can post pictures on the social media that your pet is missing. If you happen to have a group where many people belong to your locality, then you can post in such groups.

Get help from family and friends:

The more, the better, if more people search the better the search will be. So make sure that you gather around your friends and family members to find your lost pet.
