There has been an abundance of dogs found wandering on Fishers Island lately. We all want to keep our pets safe and out of harms way so here are 3 easy things to do:
- ID Your Pets – Google ‘Dog ID’ and you will find many websites where you can order a tag for your pet. Include your cell phone and name. If you prefer to do it less expensively, just take a sharpie and write your phone number on the collar – which should stay on your pet at all times – in case they ‘escape’.
- ‘Like’ the facebook page https://www.facebook.com/FishersIsland.NY/. If we hear of a found or lost pet we will post it here. (Call 788-7487 or text 203-801-8431 to report. Photos are most helpful!)
- Call Fishers Island’s NY State Police office at 788-7600 and let them know if your pet is missing. They may be able to help track them down.
Luckily we are on an island and pets rarely get on the ferry by themselves – although it has happened! And, there are many people who are willing to stop and check on a pet on a road to keep them safe from the traffic – but pet owners need to do their part and ID their dogs and cats.
