LOST / FOUND GREYHOUND CHECKLIST
In the event your greyhound decides to take an unexpected journey away from his or her happy home, the information below should come in handy.
When you discover your dog is lost, the following should be done - all as soon as possible:
- Do a quick search of the area. Take a favorite treat, toy or dog friend with you. Also take both a collar and attached lead, even if the dog was wearing a collar when lost. It is easier to slip the entire set over the dog's head than hold onto the dog while trying to attach the lead to the collar.
- Call your local police department, humane society/animal shelter, area radio stations and nearby veterinary clinics, as these are the agencies/organizations most likely to receive a call if someone finds or sights your dog (especially if there is no collar with telephone numbers or address to read). Some radio stations also may be willing to air an announcement. Also, call PG,, Inc. at 717-743-7264 and let us know
When found, if your dog has been lost for more than 48 hours (or less depending on weather conditions, i.e., inclement, extreme heat or cold) or shows visible signs of illness or injury, take him/her to a vet ASAP to be examined. DO NOT SCOLD! LOVE! Remember to call PG, Inc. at 717-743-7264, the police and any other agency you alerted to let them know your dog has been found.
