1. I lost my dog, what should I do?

Preventing And Retrieving Lost Pets

2. I found a dog; what should I do now?

If you have found a dog, first and foremost attempt to locate the owner. If the dog is not wearing tags, you can do the following:

a) Take it to the vet to check for a micro-chip (free and walk-in).

b) Check the "lost pet" listings on:

OR, Check with local agencies to see if anyone has reported a missing pet:
Nashville Humane Association
Metro Animal Control

c) Post "Lost Dog" fliers with minimum information in the area the animal was found. If someone comes forward, ask for proof of ownership, such as pictures, vet records, specific markings or traits, etc. Take fliers to local vets and groomers. They may recognize the pet and/or have a place to post the flier. Ask them for a listing of other groomers and vets in the area.

d) Post a FREE ad in The Tennessean Sunday edition for lost and found pets.

e) Send a picture to with specific details about the animal, such as temperament, location found, energy level, approximate age, gender, and physical description.

Locating an owner may take up to 10 days, after which it may be time to re-home the pet. In addition to this list of other rescues, the same fliers, ads, and emails above apply to this process as well. Also, don't forget to use social media, such as Twitter and Facebook, to get the word out!

Based on the information you provide to MTGRR, now Adopt A Golden Nashville, we will determine what further assistance can be provided (if any). In certain situations we will be able to:

a) Send the info. to our limited network of rescue contacts.

b) Distribute it to the MTGRR, now Adopt A Golden Nashville, mailing list in hopes of connecting with possible fosters/adopters.

c) Add a biography and picture as a Courtesy Posting on the Adoptables Page of this website, as well as to our Facebook and Petfinder accounts.

d) Include the dog on MTGRR, now Adopt A Golden Nashville, adoption fliers.

e) Include the dog at adoption events (as appropriate).

f) Contact our foster network to find someone willing to foster the dog on your behalf.
