To help the chances of finding your pet; use social media – there are Facebook groups that are dedicated to lost and found pets. Here is the link for the lost/found Facebook page for the Lynchburg area. By putting your lost (or found) pet on this page will increase you finding your pet (or the owner if you found a lost pet). We also encourage you to visit our Center and keep an eye on our lost dogs and lost cats pages that is dedicated to the lost pets that come into our care. And watch our Facebook page because we post lost pets that come to us on that page as well. Sometimes pets end up at other area shelters, so be sure to check all of the surrounding counties shelters for your lost pet. Petco Love Lost is also a great resource for reporting your pet lost or if you find a pet. Pawboost is another service that you can post your lost pet. We recommend using all of these resources for a better chance of finding your pet.
