Pet adoption isn’t the only thing that’s been revolutionized by social media. Hundreds of Facebook pages devoted to finding lost pets, or locating the owners of found pets, have also sprung up in recent years, often with remarkable track records of success.
In addition to providing a place to list lost and found pets, these communities usually offer tips on looking for your lost pets, catching loose or stray pets, and other invaluable tips.
We know this list isn’t complete. If you know of an active Facebook community helping with lost or found pets in the U.S., please email email@example.com so we can add them!
* These states may have local or greater regional lost pet pages, but no central state page with a large following has emerged. Click on the links to generate a Google search for the local, regional, or smaller national groups; you should probably consider posting to as many of them as possible. You can also try lost and found pets on Facebook, lost cats on Facebook and lost dogs on Facebook to find local, regional, and new Facebook pages and groups for lost and found pets.
