If I have lost my pet, what should I do?
First thing to do would be to begin your search and make a call to the animal control officer for assistance. In most instances, stray dogs that the Police Department picks up in Bedford are taken to the Animal Rescue League, 545 Route 101, Bedford, New Hampshire.

If your pet does not return home in what you feel is a reasonable amount of time, begin to make flyers with information of your pet on them. For example, your pet's description, a photo, its gender, breed, color, size, distinguishing features, id tags, etc. Make several copies of your flyer and begin dropping them off at local vet's clinics, animal shelters, schools, local business, etc.
