Pets do go missing occasionally, but they often turn up safe. Dogs especially, are scared of fireworks and their natural instinct is to run away, so monitor your pets during frequent firework displays.
Lost pets are usually picked up by either The Humane Society, C.A.R.E, One Dog At A Time or the Department of Agriculture, so they should be your first point of contact. The Humane Society will email its members as well as post messages on their Facebook page to help you look for your pet, or to advise if they have picked up a missing animal.
If you find an injured wild animal you can take it to Island Veterinary Services who will nurse it back to health. They appreciate donations for this service (which they offer for free). They can be contacted on (345) 949 0787. They don’t however, have enough staff for pick-ups.
Canine Friends (Tel: (345) 925 3990) rescues dogs from dangerous situations and places them with a good foster home.
All charities and veterinarians will email its members and post messages on their social media pages to help find lost pets. The SMU Veterinary School and DOA also maintain a Lost Animal List in their joint Cayman Islands Recovery Program.
