We encourage all Pet Finders to request proof of ownership. Many breeds look similar and unfortunately there are people out there that may be dishonest. We want to help you make sure you the correct pet home.
If someone messaging you is saying that they have your pet, you can offer to email or text proof of ownership. Shelters will typically require 2 forms of proof including but not limited to:
- Vet records
- Photos of the pet
- Microchip registration
- ACK registration (if pure breed and registered)
- Unique behavior traits Etc.
If you experience any difficulty with this, please connect with us at email@example.com and we will do what we can to assist.
