Missing Pet Network
Found: a useful web page for locating missing pets nationwide. The Missing Pet Network, buried deep within the Department of Agriculture's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service site carries free listings for lost pets, including a photo. Volunteers organize the listings by state and prefer a specific format. "How To Find A Lost Cat Or Dog" offers tips on searching for Spot and keeping your pets safe at home. Don't get your hopes up, though the site is hard to find and relies on pet finders to go online and search for an owner. You can help speed up the search by printing out site posters.
