Is Your Pet Lost?

If your pet was microchipped, call the company it was registered to and report them missing. If your pet is found & the finder calls the microchip number into the company, they will have your information to speed-up the reunion.

Post a FREE listing on, this website’s mission is to reunite owners with their lost pets.
Call or visit your city’s animal control holding facility. If your pet was spotted & picked up by animal control they might be here. Each city has a different protocol for how long they will hold an animal, be sure to check frequently.
Create & hang fliers in your neighborhood. The best way to get the word out is to spread your pet’s photo around. The flyer should include a current, clear photo of the pet with a description and your contact information.

ALI's Homemade treats for pets on restricted diets.

Do you wish you could give your pet treats-but he/she eats a special or restricted diet? Now you can!

Canned Food
If you are using a canned product, cut up some bite size pieces and bake in your microwave oven for approximately 2 to 3 minutes. This will change the texture, but not damage the nutrients, and is an excellent treat for your pet, while still maintaining the necessary diet.

Dry Food
If you are feeding dry food, grind the kibbles into flour using a blender and mix with water and bake them on a cookie sheet in a 350 degree oven for approximately 30 minutes, until crispy. This will allow your pet to feel special and spoiled, while still remaining on its special diet.
