Tips When Your Pet Goes Missing

Lost Pets

Losing a pet can be devastating. Pets are our children and when they go missing, we are overwhelmed with loss, sadness, anxiety and a feeling of helplessness. There are a few things you can do to help your pet when they go missing:

  1. Go look for them yourself first. That’s priority one.
  2. If you can’t find them, start contacting local shelters, rescues and send them a picture, name and age of your pet and the date they went missing.
  3. Talk to all your neighbors and post the animals pictures to mailboxes, posts outside in your location.
  4. Place your pet’s favorite toys outside, one of your sweaters with your scent on it, blankets they love or a pet bed. Animals have a strong sense of smell. Your scent will carry to them through the wind.
  5. Post to social networks: Facebook, Instagram and local missing pet groups.
  6. Contact local rescue and find groups – there are lots of volunteers willing to help find your pet at no cost. In fact, I have worked with many volunteer groups as a pet communicator to help give them locations for searching for your pet. Advise if your pet is not well or on any medications.
  7. Contact an Animal Communicator to work with.
  8. Do the home exercises noted below


  1. Don’t use more than one animal communicator when locating a lost pet. It’s confusing for both you and the pet. Every animal communicator will take a different read and pick up different things about your pet. Neither of them is wrong but it will be different. Using more than one communicator may pull a different read and be confusing to you. When a communicator connects with the energy of your pet; it’s like meeting them in person. If too many communicators are connecting with your pet, it can be distressful and confusing. When an animal starts wandering or looking for something they have picked up on, their natural instincts have already kicked in. Their energies are on high alert and they become very excited. Add too many people to the pot and the animal may not want to connect. If your animal is hurt, this is even more distressing because they may be tired, in pain, emotionally distraught and scared.
  2. Do not send your pet emotional energies indicating you are upset, angry, hurt, worried. Your pet is naturally connected to you. When your pet feels these emotions from you it can send the wrong message or it can distress them or make them think they are not welcome home again or that they may be in trouble. Many times I have had to work with a lost pet and calm them down, let them know it’s ok to come home and they are not in trouble for leaving.
  3. Release your expectations on the pet and others trying to help you. It again sends the wrong message to your pet and the people working with you. I know this can be very difficult to do when a pet is missing but it is the best thing you can do for your pet and for yourself. Remain calm.
  4. Don’t give up on your pet unless you’re absolutely sure. You need to follow your own personal instincts on this. No one (not even an animal communicator) knows your pet better than you. You are connected deeply with your animal more than anyone else and you will know inside if they are still out there, hurt, stolen or passed on. I have connected pets with parents that have been missing more than 6 months. Sometimes it can take more than 3 readings; engaging rescue groups and posting everywhere in social media. There is never any guarantee in locating a lost pet, but we do our best as pet owners, communicators, rescuers and those that just have a love for animals in general and want to volunteer.

Home Exercises

  • Every night your pet is missing, you can send your home light to help your pet find their way home. Imagine the whitest of lights beaming from the sky down on your home. Send a visualization of this to your pet simply by thinking of them and showing them the light.
  • Place a picture of your pet under your pillow before you go to bed. Send them good thoughts that’s that you miss them; you welcome them home and let them know you love them.
