Every pawrent’s nightmare is to lose their pet. A missing furkid is a terrifying, stressful and traumatic experience that all pet-owners would gladly avoid. Unfortunately, such things are not always within our control and despite your best efforts, your pet may just go missing.
If your pet is missing, it’s crucial to immediately get the word out and start to look for it, especially at areas they tend to favour within your home or around your estate. While sending out a search party is an effective method, here are four other resources you can tap on to for help as well.Contact the relevant authorities
As soon as your fur-kid goes missing, contact the SPCA and AVA. The SPCA will assist by advertising on Straits Times Classified’s “Found” section for two days as well as on their own website for five days. Additionally, you are encouraged to call the AVA as they may have picked up your pet. Before calling them, ensure that you are able to clearly and specifically describe your pet to them.Contact details:

Social Media is a great way to request for the help of the public quickly and efficiently. Include information such as the physical description of your pet, its name, when and where it was last seen and your contact information. Your post should also include a photo of your pet to give the public a better visual of your pet.
Through social media, you are both spreading the word and enlisting the help of others to help locate your missing pet. Reach out to pet groups on Facebook to request for their help to reach out to their followers.
