*Check at the Calcasieu Parish Animal Services and Adoption Center daily.
*Post “lost pet” flyers in at least a one-mile radius.
*Talk to neighbors and give them a flyer in person. Ask them to look in their yard, shed, garage, and basement.
*Leave out food and water on your front or back porch.
*Drive and walk around calling your pets name and shaking treats or a container of dry food. Dusk is especially a good time to try this. Lost pets are fairly near home, so this is an extremely important technique.
*Leave something familiar to your pet on your front and back porch – a toy, their bed, a t-shirt that smells like you.
*Do not give up hope!! Keep looking. Once the trauma of the event has passed, your pet may very well come home.
