Found in Hazelton Print E-mail

This young, intact male Golden Retriever was brought to the shelter May the 12th, requiring urgent Veterinary care. 
He was found to have a serious problem with skin infections, thought to have started with an embedded collar, and having spread widely from there. 
He was also diagnosed with cellulitis in both front legs, and badly infested with tape worms. He is currently on two different medications to treat his skin and cellulitis and once those medications are completed he will be treated with a broad spectrum, and expensive, worming medication.

This dog, who we are calling Joey, was reported to have been running at large for at least 3 weeks in the area of the Wrinch Memorial Hospital in Hazelton prior to being brought in. Reports had also apparently been made to local veterinary clinics about him. If you have any knowledge of Joey's history, we would appreciate being contacted at our e-mail address This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Proof of ownership will be required for the return of this dog.

What to do if you lose your dog Print E-mail

Your best bet to get your pet back is to make sure he's easily identified with id or license tags. If he's found by a good Samaritan or picked up by the Bylaw Officer, the license number or id tag is his ticket home. Municipalities keep records of all license numbers.

There are still several other steps you can take.

  • Call your Town or municipality and speak with the Bylaw Officer.
  • Call your local vet offices; they are often the first place that people call when they find a missing animal.
  • Call the radio stations as they have regular lost and found announcements.
  • Make some posters with a colored picture of your pet and post 'em around the neighborhood, in convenience stores, near schools, etc.

If your dog is returned by a stranger who cared for them, give them a box of chocolates or a bouquet of flowers and make sure you cancel the ad and take down the posters.

All dogs should have a collar and dog tags! The thought of a loved dog being stolen or lost is not pleasant for anyone, although statistics clearly show that there is a far greater chance of seeing your dog again if they are wearing a dog collar and license or pet id tag.
