   If you find a lost dog or cat please keep in mind that the animal might be lost or separated from its owner. Think lost not STRAY when you find a animal in the streets. Get the dog/cat checked for a microchip and consider taking it to a shelter to gives it's owners a chance to find him/her . If the pet is microchiped the shelter will  scan them and contact the owners to pick them up at the shelters location. If you are worried about leaving the lost dog/cat at the shelter , you can get a intake number to keep track on him and call the shelter for updates. Another option is placing yourself on the interested list as the first person to call when it's available for adoption.

 

  Please note that Pet Rescue Solutions is a small rescue and is not considered a shelter of any kind.Pet Rescue Solutions can not go upon the caller's  request to pick up or catch a stray dog. If you see a stray dog or cat please call your local shelter to report the stray animal and animal control will go to collect the animal. If you can no longer keep your pet ; please do not just leave your pets in the street and take them to your nearby shelter. Not all shelters are known for euthanizing pets; there are some shelters  that are know for being Non- Kill shelters. Every so often shelters host adoption events and many pets get adopted into good loving homes.

 

Pet Rescue Solutions cannot accept stray dogs or cats into the rescue unless there was a  reasonable  effort  made to find their owner within the 10 day waiting period. This includes posting fliers in the area where the animal was found , submitting a Craigslist , Social-Media and taking the animal to the vet to be scanned for a microchip.  If you are unable to create lost/ found fliers , Pet Rescue Solutions can provide you with some fliers. 

After the 10 day waiting period the animals name will then be enlisted in the wait-list.


Please note that Pet Rescue Solutions do not take in strays until a 10 day wait period due to the fact that the owner might be looking for their pet. Also keep in mind that there is a waiting list and animals that are vaccinated , microchip ,spay or neuter  before hand , have priority on the waiting list. 


What to do when you lose a Pet?

  1. Notify all local humane societies and shelters immediately.  Send them a recent photo of your pet with a detailed description, along with your contact information.  Most facilities are very busy, and it can take several days before they realize they have your pet.  Colorado State law requires shelters to hold a stray pet for 5 days before putting it up for adoption or euthanize it.  Many times pet owners have called shelters inquiring about their pet and have been told the pet is not there, only to find out later that the pet was indeed at the shelter all along.  The best option is to go visit the shelter in person daily to see if your pet is there. 

  2. Post flyers in your neighborhood and be sure to go door to door to notify neighbors, nearby businesses, etc.  The more eyes looking for your pet, the better.

  3. Post a Lost Pet ad on your own Facebook page, Twitter, and Pinterest.  Social media is a big help to spread the word about your lost pet. Call local veterinarians and give them the same information you provide to the shelters.  If your pet is injured or killed, it will most likely end up at a vet clinic or shelter.

  4. Continue searching for your pet by calling its name, walking your neighborhood or area where it was lost, etc.  You can set food outside or you can borrow a live trap from your shelter and set it out with your pet's blanket and food inside.  (This might also attract other local pets or wildlife and trap will need to be checked several times daily).

  • Remember - your pet has a much better chance of being returned to you quickly when it's wearing a collar with I.D. tags displaying your phone number.  Although your pet is micro-chipped, only a shelter or veterinarian's office will be able to scan for a chip.  An I.D. tag makes it easy for anyone who finds your pet to call you without having to take your pet to a shelter.

Spay and Neutering  

Pet Rescue Solutions would like to promote the many benefits of Spaying and Neutering your pet...

  1. Your female pet will live a longer, healthier life.
    Spaying helps prevent uterine infections and breast cancer, which is fatal in about 50 percent of dogs and 90 percent of cats. Spaying your pet before her first heat offers the best protection from these diseases.

  2. Neutering provides major health benefits for your male.
    Besides preventing unwanted litters, neutering your male companion prevents testicular cancer, if done before six months of age.

  3. Your spayed female won't go into heat.
    While cycles can vary, female felines usually go into heat four to five days every three weeks during breeding season. In an effort to advertise for mates, they'll yowl and urinate more frequently—sometimes all over the house!

  4. Your male dog won't want to roam away from home.
    An intact male will do just about anything to find a mate! That includes digging his way under the fence and making like Houdini to escape from the house. And once he's free to roam, he risks injury in traffic and fights with other males.

  5. Your neutered male will be much better behaved.
    Neutered cats and dogs focus their attention on their human families. On the other hand, unneutered dogs and cats may mark their territory by spraying strong-smelling urine all over the house. Many aggression problems can be avoided by early neutering.

  6. Spaying or neutering will NOT make your pet fat.
    Don’t use that old excuse! Lack of exercise and overfeeding will cause your pet to pack on the extra pounds—not neutering. Your pet will remain fit and trim as long as you continue to provide exercise a   nd monitor food intake.

  7. It is highly cost-effective.
    The cost of your pet's spay/neuter surgery is a lot less than the cost of having and caring for a litter. It also beats the cost of treatment when your unneutered tom escapes and gets into fights with the neighborhood stray!

  8. Spaying and neutering your pet is good for the community.
    Stray animals pose a real problem in many parts of the country. They can prey on wildlife, cause car accidents, damage the local fauna and frighten children. Spaying and neutering packs a powerful punch in reducing the number of animals on the streets.

  9. Spaying and neutering helps fight pet overpopulation.
    Every year, millions of cats and dogs of all ages and breeds are euthanized or suffer as strays. These high numbers are the result of unplanned litters that could have been prevented by spaying or neutering.
