Lost/Found Pet Resource Guide
Losing your cat or dog can be a gut-wrenching experience. There are, however, things you can do to help keep your pet safe at home. And if your cat does not return home from a night out, or your dog slips the fence, Massachusetts Animal Coalition (MAC) can be a resource for how to respond to this situation.
The combined effort, expertise and (unfortunately) personal experience of animal care professionals in MAC have resulted in this resource guide. Meant only as a guide, these web pages have been developed to assist people with animals in Massachusetts. Much of this information has been compiled following countless hours of research and inquiry with professionals around the country already involved in solving the mystery of the missing pet and applied to the humane movement in Massachusetts.
