You can report a missing pet by:

If we find your pet, we will let you know. It is important to keep your pet registration and microchip details correct and up to date. This makes it easier for us to reunite you quickly.

Tips for searching for your pet

For dogs, search the area your dog went missing on foot and go for a drive to search a larger area. Check places that are familiar to your dog. The local park, shops and other areas you normally walk are a good place to start.

For cats, search your own backyard and house very carefully. Cats hide very well if they are scared or injured. Check with your neighbours and ask permission to search their yards, sheds and garages. Cats will often hide very close to home or may get locked away by accident. Listen carefully when you are searching for your cat - a quiet meow can easily be missed.

Contact your neighbours

Speak to your neighbours and/or create a lost notice to leave with neighbours. Pictures tell a thousand words, a neighbour might have seen your pet and a photo might jog their memory.

Ask neighbours to search sheds and garages or to open a door or window while you call your pet.

Check your pet's microchip and registration details

Check your pet’s details are up to date:

  • when you report your pet missing with us
  • when you contact your pet's microchip registry*

*If you have forgotten or lost the information regarding which microchip registry your pet is listed with check Pet Address.

Contact local vets and animal shelters

Contact your local vets to report your pet missing. People often take a lost animal to the vet, even if it is not injured.

Also contact animal shelters as your pet may have wandered a long way or someone might have driven them to another shelter.
