It is always best if it is possible for you to care for the pet
yourself while looking for its owners. Any time an animal is
impounded, there is the chance that it will not be claimed or rescued
in time. Although every municipality is different, the State of
Kansas only requires that an animal be held for three days before it
can be euthanized.
Try to find a pet's owner.
Make up fliers of the pet WITH A PICTURE and take them to your local veterinarians. Give one to the mail carrier. Post them in a prominent place in the most heavily traveled places in the area. Put fliers up at school. Children often pay attention to animals
that adults ignore. The Miami County
papers do not charge for a FOUND ad. Take it to
a local vet and have it scanned for a microchip and to see if they
recognize the pet.
