Lost and Found
We work in partnership with Animal Search UK where you can register details of a lost or found pet directly.
We are also happy to publicise lost and founds on our Facebook page, click here to access. We are also on Twitter and will retweet posts from Animal Search UK if they are from our area.
What do I do if I find a stray cat?
If you find a stray cat take it to your local vet clinic where they can scan* and check to see if it is micro-chipped.
If so, re-uniting the cat with its owner could be just a phone call away.
I've found a deceased cat, what can I do?
If you find a dead cat in a public area, Gloucester City Council Refuse Department will remove the body and scan* it to see if it is microchipped. Call them on 01452 396396.
*We cannot stress enough the importance of micro-chipping your cat for these very reasons*
Search first. Check small spaces – everywhere from cosy cupboards to garden sheds
If your cat is microchipped, talk to Petlog on 0844 4633 999 to register your cat missing
Contact all vet practices in the area
Make and put up flyers in the local area
Use social media! Post a picture and description of your cat on your own Facebook page as well as the page of your local Facebook group
Ask your neighbours if they recognise the cat – there might be someone searching for their lost pet
If the cat is sick or injured, call the RSPCA on 0300 1234 999 (UK), USPCA on 028 3025 1000 (NI) or SSPCA on 03000 999 999 (Scotland)
Check the cat for identification. Take it to your local vet clinic to be scanned for a microchip
Check local newspapers and Facebook community groups to see if the cat has been listed as missing
