Found a Pet ? Found the Owner? Ask for Proof of Ownership!



You’ve found a pet. You receive a call from someone, and after some discussion, you believe it’s a match. Have you heard about pet flipping? Here is how *YOU* can ensure that you return the pet to its rightful owner.

  • Ask for proof of ownership. 
  • Ask for a photo. 
  • Ask for veterinary records. 
  • Ask the owner to describe the collar/harness. 
  • Ask the owner to describe unique markings on the pet’s body. 

For Craigslist ads:

If you want to include a picture of the pet, post the picture in black or white, or post a close up of the dog’s face only.

Always, always ask for proof of ownership from the person claiming to be the owner.
