Patch 101: How to Report Lost Pets

Can't find a beloved family pet? Let your neighbors know by posting on Patch.

Sometimes phone calls and wanted posters just aren't enough to bring our furry friends home when they go missing.

In that case, Lawrenceville Patch is here to help. 

Did you know you can submit an announcement to let the community know and ask for help in bringing your lost pet home. 

First click the bolded "Announcements" link under the "News" tab at the top of any Patch page. 

Then click "Add an Announcement" on the right-hand side of the page.

From there, enter a title and any additional information you can give about your pet. Make sure you select "Lost and Found"  under the "Category" selection choice.

To help neighbors better identify your pet, we suggest you also upload photographs by clicking "Upload Photos and Videos." Be sure and leave some information on how readers can contact you if they find your lost friend and don't forget to let us know if and when you find your pet! We love happy endings!

Thank you for offering another way for owners of lost pets to find their beloved family pets. I think too many people don't know how to go about finding their pets when they have gone missing. They should also alert the Gwinnett County Animal Shelter because if they haven't picked them up they may get turned over to them. The shelter only gives the animal 5 days to be reclaimed and then 0-5 days before it is put to sleep if it is not adopted. I have become an advocate of awareness and think everone should be enlighted to the proper channels to find their pet. Microchipping is a great way to ensure that your pet gets back to you as well. Thank you for this article.
