    You lost your companion animal

  • Make a poster with your companion animal's photo, description, and your telephone number, and put it up throughout the area where the animal was lost. Do not put your animal's name on the poster, as this may help the wrong type of person to gain control of him or her. The poster could say: LOST DOG (or CAT), brown and black Beagle-mix, or orange tabby, for example. Include any medical issue such as "diabetic requires medication," and a number to call. Make sure there is an answering machine to take messages at that number.
     

  • Email the poster to everyone you know who lives or works in the area where the animal was lost, and ask them to forward it to others.
     

  • Post the animal's information on animal-related forums, in Tapuz and Nana, for example (Tapuz and Nana forums are in Hebrew):

http://www.tapuz.co.il/tapuzforum/main/forumpage.asp?id=360 (animal rights forum)

http://www.tapuz.co.il/forums2008/forumPage.aspx?forumId=16 (cat forum)

    You found a lost or homeless kitten or dog without ID

  • Post notices showing the animal's photo and description and your contact number throughout the area where he or she was found.
     

  • Email photos and a description of the animal to everyone you know, and ask them to forward the information to others.
     

  • Post the animal's photos and description on forums in Tapuz and Nana (Hebrew):

   You saw an abused cat or dog

  • Contact the municipal veterinarian of the area where you saw the animal. If he or she does not promise to do something immediately, fax or email a description of what you saw to the veterinarian, providing as many details as possible about the location, day, and time at which the event occurred and about the abuser.

To identify the municipal veterinarian for any area, click the following link and type the city, town, village, or regional council you are seeking information about. The name of the relevant veterinarian will appear:

http://www.vtr.moag.gov.il/vtr/DogCenter/search_rofe.asp (Hebrew)
 

  • Fax or email a copy of your letter to Dganit Ben-Dov, DVM, the Veterinary Services official in charge of enforcing the Animal Protection Law, and leave a message on her answering machine at 03-9688901, explaining that you also sent her a fax or email. Fax (preferred method) 03-9681661, email dganitb@moag.gov.il. If you send an email rather than a fax to Dr. Ben-Dov, please write REPORT OF ANIMAL ABUSE in the subject line.
     

  • If you do not receive a response, do not assume the matter has been taken care of. Call both the municipal veterinarian and Dr. Ben-Dov until the matter is attended to properly. The animals depend on you!
