Lost and Found Animals

It seems as though the number of lost/missing pets has been increasing in our area. The animal shelter has been getting calls from not only Mesquite and Bunkerville but also from the Arizona strip and Moapa areas.

There are simple steps pet owners can take to ensure the safety of their pets: 

1) Keep pets indoors when not at home

2) Ensure proper identification with a collar and I.D. tag and identification microchip

3) Spay and neuter pets: sterilized pets are less likely to roam

4) Keep dogs on leashes when outside and keep cats indoors

5) Never leave an animal unattended in a vehicle

6) Ensure that gates are padlocked and fences are high enough and secure

7) Keep pet licenses current and keep a current photo of pets on hand

8) If pet is missing call the Animal Shelter, 702 346 5268  to leave animal’s description, age, sex, collar, last know location  and your contact information. 9) Post lost pet information in your neighborhood, veterinarian offices, groomers and local  markets.
