It is extremely important to get a loose pet to a protected area and off of the streets for its safety. If you feel safe, slowly approach any loose animal. Otherwise call animal control for assistance.
Call any phone numbers on the pet’s identification tags, or take the pet to a veterinarian to be scanned for a microchip.
If you take any pet into your home for temporary shelter, keep the pet separate from your family members and pets. You cannot know how any pet will react in an unfamiliar place around new people or pets.
