April 23rd is National Lost Dog Awareness Day

April 23rd is about increasing the awareness concerning missing dogs, and celebrates reunions!

Many lost dogs reunite with their families but there are helpful tools to know and be prepared if the situation were to happen.

Some tips to prevent this situation include:

-Keeping your dog secure, whether in the yard or on a leash

-Training your dog with recall commands

-Supervise your animals and make sure you know their whereabouts

Tag and microchip, making sure the information is up to date

Spaying/neutering can help with wandering

We never want this situation to happen but there are services to help! Our local Team Chelsea is one with a strong social media presence and they help reunite hundreds of animals a year.
