We recommend keeping tags on your pet at all times, and microchipping your pet to prevent loss. It's crucial to keep your contact information up-to-date on both tags and microchip. If you find or lose a pet, there are places to turn.

Lost Dogs Arizona
Lost Dogs Arizona is a local Arizona resource. Lost Dogs Arizona is a group of volunteers who saw the need to provide education for dog owners on preventing the loss of their dog and provide no-cost resources to the owners of lost dogs to help increase the chances of locating owners and successfully reuniting them with their dog.
The program also benefits local animal control and shelters by decreasing the number of "owned strays" entering the animal control/shelter system and increasing the chances of finding an owner once a dog is in their care.

How to Tag Your Car to Find Your Pet - great articleIf you have FOUND a dog or cat that is not wearing identification tags with a working telephone number, please take it to a veterinary office or emergency animal clinic to be scanned for a microchip. It is important that they use a universal scanner, so it's a good idea to call and verify that before going. Any vet can do this for you without an appointment and for free. Be sure they scan the entire body several times, as microchips can migrate.
Also, check CraigsList Lost & Found, as well as CraigsList Pets and other online lost pet websites to see if the pet is posted. Post flyers in the neighborhood and at local veterinary offices, and consider placing a sign in your own yard.
