Re: Tips on How To Report a Lost or Found Pet

Oh, no - I'm sorry to hear this, J.L-P.

I'll let my dog-walking friends in the area know to keep an eye out for her.

All fingers and paws crossed, thumbs pressed that Lulu makes it home safely.

Let's hope this information will be helpful- Lulu ran away this morning (not from my house).

If anyone sees a shorthaired Chihuahua, sable with white chest and front paws in the Gattikon/Thalwill area let me know.

Thank you.

She might be preparing to make her own way home across the lake:



I hope you find her safe soon. Give her a big cuddle from me when you do.

Bump.

Anybody in the Gattikon/Thalwil/Langau am Albis area, please keep your eyes open for J.L-P's little monster.

Spanks!

Re: Tips on How To Report a Lost or Found Pet

Great News!!! The system works! Lulu had taken a walk to Langnau from Gattikon where she was picked-up by a worker who took her on his rounds (and took pics of her with all his colleagues). He took her to the vets after work where they read her chip and allerted the STMZ and I was then called.

She was hanging out in Rafz having her picture taken even more when I picked her up. I think the family was sad to see her go- they even waved from their terrace and had bought her a leash.

From the time I posted the lost dog announcement and received the call from the authorities it was about 4 hours.

I would like to thank everyone for their concern for Lulu.

Re: Tips on How To Report a Lost or Found Pet

Oh, thank doG!

I'm so very, very happy to hear that Lulu was found by such nice people, that she is safely back at home, and that the system really does work.

Give the little one a big cuddle from all the melon-collies here.


(That was quite a trek she made!)

Re: Tips on How To Report a Lost or Found Pet

A small cat visited our patio last night. It looked to be healthy but had no collar. If it comes back again tonight I would like to report it as a lost animal, but am I then supposed to bring the cat into my apartment and keep it until I get a response from someone at tierdatenbank.ch or do I just report it and let it go about its business?

It is best to keep the animal safe with you - which would likely mean indoors - as that is the best way to insure that the owner and cat can be reunited.

When you call the Meldstelle the person you speak to can best advise as to what to do in an individual case.

Good for you for trying to help; hope the cat and owner find each other soon.

Re: Tips on How To Report a Lost or Found Pet

I made a website for lost/found pets.

http://www.petpinr.com/

It is important that people subscribe to their neighborhood voluntarily so if a new entry is posted, they know immediately.
Please feel free to use/spread.

I'd be happy to hear your experience so that I can improve it.

Now working on the android application.

Re: Tips on How To Report a Lost or Found Pet

If you've lost your dog/cat/rat/bird.. or found a lost, wandering pet, best thing to do is to to report it on the STMZ's (Schweizerische Tiermeldezentrale) site! www.stmz.ch

They are absolutely fantastic in posting (through their site, sending out emails to memeber, and sms) lost pets so everyone in the area can keep an eye out.

Re: Tips on How To Report a Lost or Found Pet

Dogs and cats have microchips so that if they get lost, the person that finds them can just go to the vet and the owner can be identified. However, I am going to buy budgies and would like to know if anyone knows if a ring for the budgies leg is a legal requirement or not.
thanks in advance for your answers

No legal requirement for a ring. But you can have your budgie microchipped. Our parrot has a microchip.

fyi microchip is not a requirement for cats, just something you can do if you want to.

Re: Tips on How To Report a Lost or Found Pet

I have been wondering about the following for a while:

Suppose one finds a lost animal in need of emergency medical treatment, say from an accident with a car. Obviously, the thing to do is to take the animal to the vet, but how does payment work?

Will you, as finder, have to pay upfront and hope to recoup the cost from the owner, if found?

Or will the vet perform the necessary emergency treatment, and then hope to recoup the cost from the owner, if found?

And in both cases, if the owner is found, and emergency treatment has taken place, what happens if they refuse to pay for the treatment?

Does anyone know how this works?

I once found a your kitten in a village where I lived. It looked like it wasn't a stray, so I visited the local Pet Doctor.

The Doctor recognized the cat and gaveme the details of the owner, who then came to pickup the cat.

Worked fine for me...
A family down my street once lost their kitten. The little girl, whose kitten it was, was unconsolably sad. She knocked on people's doors and made lost posters and stuck them all over the neighbourhood.

Then one day a woman came to the door and brought her the kitten. She said her boyfriend had given it to her for her birthday, and has assumed it was totally legit until she saw the poster. I hope she had a serious word with the idiot.
