As a member of the Northside Pet Connections, I hear of stories of lost pets. If this happens to you, first file a lost pet report with every shelter within a 60-mile radius of your home and visit the nearest shelters daily, if possible. Walk or drive through your neighborhood several times each day. Ask neighbors, letter carriers and delivery people if they have seen your pet. Hand out a recent photograph of your pet and information on how you can be reached if your pet is found. This is how I found our lost kitty several years ago. Post notices at grocery stores, community centers, veterinary offices, traffic intersections, pet supply stores and other locations. Next, try the internet. Sites such as Craigslist, Fido Finder, Center for Lost Pets can help. Lastly, don't give up your search. Animals who have been lost for months have been reunited with their owners.
All animals, including indoor pets, should have name tags and microchipped if possible.
The Northside Pet Connection’s main mission is to assist in the spay and neuter of cats and dogs throughout the Northside. We do this by providing spay and neuter vouchers that greatly reduces the cost to pet owners. The towns we serve include: Groveland, Big Oak Flats, Coulterville, La Grange and Don Pedro. We are now expanding service to surrounding communities.
In July, we distributed 32 spay and neuter vouchers and 5 medical vouchers. Over the past year, NPC has given out more than 400 spay and neuter vouchers. As a reminder, the NPC has up to 35 spay and neuter vouchers available per month. All vet clinics do accept these vouchers which substantially reduced the cost the spay and neuter.
Please call (209) 732-6194 for requesting vouchers. For Spanish speakers, please call (209) 852-9440. When making a request, please provide your name, phone number, mailing address and how many vouchers are needed. Messages are checked about 1 time per week.
Thank you for caring about your animals and the welfare of animals in general. The Northside Pet Connection does need members. Please join us!
