Lost or Found Pet Tutorial

What to do if you find or lose a pet

In Lesson 1 of the Kids 4 Critters program, students learn about the 4 R's (reflect, respond, respect, and rewards). We teach that everyone (adults and children) must reflect on the condition of animals in Wake County, responsibly respond to the needs of these animals, respect the animals' needs and understand how animals communicate with us. When we accept our responsibilities, we can then appreciate and enjoy the great rewards that come with responsible pet ownership. The following tutorial focuses on one aspect of being responsible. In this video, you'll learn what to do if you find a lost pet or if your pet is ever lost.
