Try to Coax the Animal into Coming to You
If you want to help the dog or the cat that is lost then at first you must make sure that you do not scare the animal away. If it is in a crowded area then wait for it to go somewhere safe.
Do not try to run after it else you may startle it. It is especially true in the case of dogs, a scared dog is a threat to itself and to you as well.The best way of doing it is to talk to it in gentle voice and offer some food to coax it into coming to you.
Put a Leash on It
Once the dog comes to you, you can try to put a leash on it. However, make sure that you do it as slowly and unnoticeably as possible. Most of the time, the dog may scare and run away when you try to restrain it.
In case of a cat, try to restrain it into a cage or if you do not have a cage, keep it in your lap.
Check it for ID
Check the dog or the cat for ID card. Usually, the pet parents have a card around their pet or emotional support animal’s neck so that whoever finds their pet could contact them easily. Besides ID cards, many pet parents have microchips inserted into the dog’s or cat's body.In case you do not find any ID on them, take it to the veterinarian doctor and get it checked for microchips.
In case you were looking for an emotional support animal and found that this stray pup or kitty has everything to lift your spirits then you should apply for an ESA letter. Before deciding to work with a therapist or a company, make sure that you see a emotional support animal letter to be sure of your decision.
