Pet owners in Elk Grove Village who lose their pets are encouraged to report the missing pet to the Police Information Center at (847) 357-4100. The Information Center maintains an animal log of pets reported missing and immediately contact pet owners when an animal with a matching description is found or spotted in the Village. Pets that are captured with no ability to contact the owner are sent to Golf Rose Animal Hospital in Schaumburg.
Residents are also encouraged to report pets seen lost to the Information Center in an effort to reunite them with their owners. Officers are trained to use equipment that retrieves encoded information from microchipped pets to identify the owner of the animal. Officers can also obtain owner information from county rabies tags.
Some additional steps that may help you locate your lost pet include:
• Contact local animal shelters and animal control agencies. File a lost pet report with shelters within a 50-mile radius of your home and visit the nearest shelters, if possible.
• Search the neighborhood. Walk or drive through your neighborhood several times each day. Ask neighbors, letter carriers and delivery people if they have seen your pet. Hand out a recent photograph and contact information.
• Advertise. Post notices at grocery stores, community centers, veterinary offices and pet supply stores. As a reminder, signs are not permitted on Village parkways, medians, streetlights, traffic signals, Village-owned signs, or trees. It may seem harmless to tape signage such as lost pet notices, but tape and other materials cause significant damage to painted poles and offenders may be responsible for repair or replacement costs and fines.
• Try the Internet. In addition to spreading the word on social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter, there are a number of sites available for locating lost pets, including: Center for Lost Pets (www.thecenterforlostpets.com), Craigslist (www.craigslist.org) and Lost Pet USA (www.lostpetusa.net).
• Beware of pet-recovery scams. When talking to a stranger who claims to have found your pet, ask him to describe the pet thoroughly before you offer any information. Be particularly wary of people who insist that you give or wire them money for the return of your pet.
Remember that a pet—even an indoor pet—has a better chance of being returned if she always wears a collar and an ID tag with your name, address and telephone number and/or microchips.
