If you’re moving, you should know that it’s common for pets to run off during the move. Sometimes, people report lost pets after they let their dog or cat outside. These same pets never ran off in their old homes. Sometimes the escape while families have doors open during the actual move. Keep in mind, it takes several weeks for animals to feel at home and to reset their internal “GPS,” so pay extra care to keep your pet from escaping during the first several weeks after you move. If you arrive in Midland and your pet manages to escape, many organizations work together to help with reunification. The Midland Animal Shelter, with support from volunteer groups like the Midland Humane Coalition and MASA, photos of lost and found animals. So, go follow MASA’s Facebook page for quick reference.

Other Ways To Find A Lost Pet

Place a lost pet ad in the newspaper. Check the found animal ads. If the pet even remotely resembles your animal, call to check in on the tip. Sometimes, people describe animals differently. Also, you never know what happens when your animal is out an about. For example, if your cat gets out, she could end up with an ear tip and a spay from a TNR caregiver before the animal is reported found by someone else. They may get so dirty, they appear a different shade. They may lose weight. Don’t be afraid to ask your neighbors. Midland residents are usually pretty friendly. Nothing brings neighbors together like worrying about a lost pet. Be sure to check in with the Midland Animal Shelter regularly.
