Finding a Lost Pet - Camp Fire
Note: To find a pet from a fire other than the Camp Fire, go to our parent site, Pet Rescue and Reunification at PetRescueAndReunification.org.
STEP ONE: ADD YOUR PET'S INFO TO OUR DATABASE
Overwhelmed by all the photos and places to look for your missing pet? Add your pet's info so we can do the work for you!
Send us information on your lost pet by making a post to our Facebook Group (see below). We will add your info to our database so we can start matching with pets found in shelters and in the field. With your permission, we can also set up a Feeding Station at your property and if activity is seen, discuss setting up a camera and even a trap.
Include the following in your post:
>>Post this info to our Facebook Group here: Camp Fire Pet Rescue and Reunification
>>Don't have Facebook? Email this information instead to: CampFirePRR@gmail.com
Unsure that your pet could have survived the fire?
Don't give up hope! We have reunited pets with their families months or even years after the event, even ones who were trapped inside a home. Also, if you have moved to a new place where you cannot currently care for your pet, there are foster families who can care for them. Contact us for more information.
STEP TWO: START SEARCHING THE FOUND PETS DATABASE
Start searching through our massive database to see if your pet has already been found!
1 - Go to the spreadsheet Camp Found Pets - Sortable. You can search for Cats Found or Dogs Found in addition to other animals (use the tabs at the bottom of the spreadsheet). Click on any photo to see it larger.
2 - Use the scroll bar along the bottom to view all the columns of data. Look for the "Status" column for current status on the cat. Look for the "Cat Location" column to find out where the cat is being held. (See screenshot below.)
3 - If the Cat Location notes that the pet is being held at a shelter, contact that shelter. (Note: Use the Shelter ID# in column B for pet identification).
