Missing pet numbers stay steady through pandemic

With higher numbers of pets being adopted since the beginning of the pandemic in 2020, comes responsibility for taking care of the pets afterward. There have been reports of dogs and cats missing in 2021, but statistics indicate that for the most part pet owners have done their job of keeping an eye on their furry friends. Marketing Coordinator for the Door County and Green Bay Humane Society Campus Shaina Allen says that their animal intake numbers at this time are very similar to years past with the exception of 2020. That was when their pet population decreased because of the high adoption numbers. 


She adds that there are a number of common reasons for pets to go missing, like an unexpected slip out of the front door, wandering in an unfamiliar location, or springing loose from a leash. She says a couple of the best ways you can prevent this is to get pets’ microchips up to date and have your contact information on their ID tags. If you find a pet you consider missing, Allen says the best option is to arrange a time to drop it off at the Humane Society or a local shelter or to contact your local law enforcement.
