Please read the following posting guidelines from Missing Pets in BC before sending them your info to help save a lot of time and let them do a better job of helping pets get home safe and sound!

OUR VOLUNTEER ADMINS MAKE ALL THE POSTS! You cannot post your pictures/posts directly to the Missing Pets in BC facebook page

There is two ways to get your information to us: a) Please send us a PRIVATE MESSAGE on the facebook page or b) EMAIL missingpetsinbc@gmail.com

PLEASE try to include a picture (not a poster) or a couple of pictures – on average you will get 10x (or more) shares and views with a picture included. If you have several to show various markings etc, send them in and we make the collages for you. If there is not a picture available we need a good description of your pet including breed and colors and coat length.

• WHEN MESSAGING OR EMAILING US MAKE SURE YOU READ THIS AND INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING INFO TO EXPEDITE POSTINGS

– If you are not the owner or finder, let us know who you are in relation to them please.

Pet name if known

Where the pet was lost or found (City and street plus cross streets)

Date the pet was lost/found – the date is crucial as it helps to cross reference posts and information.

CONTACT INFO – we require a phone number or email for lost/found pets. Facebook messages are unpredictable and we’ve had too many issues with messages not making it to the recipient. *For sightings and deceased pets we do not require contact info.* If you are hesitant to post your personal info on the page and website, you can make a new email for that pet or do a craigslist/used ad we can direct people to.

CRAIGSLIST/KIJIJi ADS – We do not post directly from Craigslist, Kijiji or used sites anymore so please do not send us the ads. Instead contact the poster and advise/tell them to post with us…we often need more information than is in the ad!

SCREENSHOTS – Also please do not send us screenshots of a post you saw on a site somewhere! …we need direct contact with the poster or owners and it is frustrating for our volunteers to not have all the info they need to help! – Instead ask the person to contact us themselves

Any other information that will help folks find/catch/recognize your pet or locate the owners – breed if known, appearance (description of pet),color, coat length, age, male or female, neutered, spayed, tattoos or microchips (we do not post numbers ever), collars and tags, behavior issues, any medical issues etc.
In the cases of found pets we will always ask that the finder holds back one identifying characteristic – tattoo number, collar info, sex, fixed or not etc and require proof of ownership for anyone trying to claim the pet – pictures, vet records, city license etc.

Please do not send posters as we delete your personal information once the case is closed – posters make it difficult to do. As well they get very small when we add them to our posts and we want the best pictures of these furry faces to help get them home!
