Lost Pets Support Group for Pet Parents –> https://www.facebook.com/groups/LPRinaussupportgroup/
Offering practical support and personal guidance for those who have lost a pet.

When your Pet first goes missing, please do the following.

  • Post your LOST pet notice including photo and detailed information on our wall. Even better if you can create a video, upload it to Youtube and share on our wall <3 Please include if your pet is wearing a collar (describe the collar), microchipped (or not), desexed or intact and any distinguishing personality features or markings.
  • Make sure their Registration and Microchip information is up to date – All cats and dogs on the Gold Coast must be registered ! It’s VERY important to ensure the microchip details are up2date. If no microchip, I would strongly advise that you put this at the top of your TO DO list when the pet is returned to you.
  • Notify ALL Vets in your surrounding area, call the Gold Coast Pound (Phone: 07 5581 7600), RSPCA, Animal Welfare League of Queensland and the GCCC Waste Management (Phone:07 55816799)
  • Try to VISIT IN PERSON with a recent photograph of your missing pet all the local vets and The Pound if possible. A busy vet clinic may not realise they have your cat whereas The Pound has been known to make mistakes in their description of found pets.
  • If you have a missing cat, check high and low and everywhere in between. Cats can get themselves into some seriously high and/or tight spots. Bang on car bonnets in case the cat is napping in the warm engine (naturally seek permission first if possible).
  • Notify the Animal Emergency Service (104 Eastlake Street, Carrara) Ph: 07 5559 1599, Animal Emergency Centre (Unit 4, 492 Scottsdale Drive, Varsity Lakes) Ph: 07 5593 4544 and GCARE (Unit 4, 75 Casua Drive, Varsity Lakes) Ph: 07 5593 4544 … These Vets operate 6:00pm – 8:00am Monday – Thursday; 24 hours Friday, Saturday and Sunday including all Public Holidays
  • Place large Posters up around the area, with a photo and description of your pet and contact details. Please ensure any photos you use in your posters are clear/high quality photos so as people can easily identify your lost pet (the same applies for posting photos online). If you want to offer a reward put “REWARD OFFERED” and do not disclose the amount at any time !

  • Ask neighbours to check in and around their yard (and on their roof as some cats have be known to become ‘stuck’ on a roof)
  • Walk around your neighbourhood, looking and asking if anyone has seen your pet (it’s advised that you be holding up your lost pet flyer so people will know you are not a salesperson thus will be more receptive)
  • Place Lost ads in the local and national news papers in your area (if you have the budget), also place online ads with all the Lost and Found sites in your area

  • If your pet is NOT microchipped, please check all the local shelters and rescues as your pet (if it has passed a temperament test) may possibly be out on foster until a new home can be found for it. This is a vitally important reason to make sure you microchip your pets because shelters/rescues will only re-home if there is no microchip and/or the details are out-of-date (especially phone numbers are disconnected).
  • Contact 4CRB 89.3FM (the only local radio station that still does lost/found pet notices) http://www.4crb.com | Phone: 07 5520 8888 Email: mail@4crb.com — Unfortunately none of the major local radio stations are prepared to air lost/found pet notices.
