First, a big thank you for helping this this pet! Now down to business.
Does the pet have a QR code on his tag? The QR tag will either be on the tag itself or on a nameplate attached to the tag, like this:
If so, point your phone’s camera at the code and when the code is recognized, click on the Pawscout link. If the family has already reported the pet as missing, you will receive information about how to take care of the pet and contact the owner. If the family has not realized that the pet is missing, they will be alerted and told how to contact you. All of this will happen in real-time, so it should only take a few seconds to help this pet.
If the pet does not have a QR code on his tag or scanning the QR code does not work, please take a few seconds to report this pet as lost in the Pawscout App. We promise it will be quick!
