  • Found = Free with the Kalamazoo Gazette.   (269) 381-5100
    They will allow you to place a free 3-day ad if you find a pet.   It will be seen by the most people if you time the ad to run on the weekend.   Leave out some determining characteristic about the animal and be sure to have a caller describe the animal.   Don't describe the animal for the caller.   There are dishonest people who may try to claim the animal is theirs when it isn't.
  • Call ahead to a vet clinic to see if they will scan the animal for a microchip.
  • Call area vet clinics and ask if they have reports of missing pets.
  • Post flyers around the area you found the pet.
  • Place flyers on bulletin boards at the pet stores, Meijer, etc.
  • If you have found orphaned kittens or puppies, visit our orphan help page.
Many "found" pets are never claimed.  Your next step may be "Finding a New Home for a Dog or Cat."
