Post Pandemic: Bringing the Pet Community Together

PetHub started Lost Pet Prevention Month in 2014 to drive a deeper conversation around the many aspects of keeping pets safe at home with their families. According to the ASPCA around 6.5 million companion animals enter animal shelters every single year. In that 6.5 million, around 3.3 million are dogs and 3.2 million are cats. Luckily, there are many strategies a pet parent can take to prevent their pet from getting lost and entering a shelter.

We are so excited to be working alongside so many amazing pet industry partners and shelters to educate pet parents and promote best practices for lost pet prevention and recovery. There will be round tables, interviews, articles, giveaways, and more! You can follow along through our Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram (@PetHub) and through this page for in-depth resources and tools.

 

Schedule

Each week we will be diving into a specific topic for Lost Pet Prevention Month:

  • Fourth of July
  • LPPM history & facts
  • Lost pet prevention and recovery for dogs

Frequently Asked Questions

PetHub started LPPM in 2014 to drive a deeper conversation around the many aspects of keeping pets safe at home with their families. Throughout the month pet industry partners join together to discuss all things involving lost pet prevention and recovery. Pet parents will have the opportunity to hear from industry experts, learn new tips and strategies, and connect with other pet parents around the United States.
While there is no way to ensure your pet will never become lost, there are several ways you can reduce the chances of it happening and make it easier to get your pet home if it does happen. Here at PetHub we stress the importance of multiple identification methods, including: external ID tag, microchip, pet license, and additional tools like travel crate tags and wallet cards.
Take a peek at all of our resources on this page - it’s a great place to start. Together with our partners, we have collected a variety of strategies, tips and information to help pet parents with lost pet prevention and recovery. Topics include: behavior, environment, traveling with pets, and more!
Connect with PetHub and all of the LPPM partners on social media -- we are constantly sharing more resources (even when it isn’t LPPM)!
The potential for pets to go missing spikes in July and August because pets are outside more and travel plans are in full swing. In fact, a survey in 2015 found that Animal Control Services see a 30% increase in lost pets July 4-6, and only 14% of lost pets are returned to their owners.
