Simple steps can help avoid having a lost pet — or assist in recovery
You're probably a lot like me: you've got a lot of photos of your pets either around your home or floating around in your digital camera.
Having a picture of each of your pets bears more importance than just for the sake of showing off your pets' funniest facial expressions. In doing so, you could ensure that you'll be reunited with a lost pet.
Missing Pet Partnership offers tips on photographing your pet for the purpose of recovering them if they are lost, and more — including measures that you can take during the time of year that many of us dog owners dread: the Fourth of July and New Year's Eve. The noise from fireworks sends many animals into panic mode, causing them to do things they wouldn't normally do that procures their escape.
With a few easy precautions, you can safeguard your pets' well-being and hopefully bring them home quickly in the event that they get separated from you.
