Who’s lost in your neighbourhood?
Due to circumstances completely beyond my control, Petluck.ca will need to be on pause for a moment. I will be accepting new postings until the end of today, October 2nd, 2014. After which, I will continue to update those postings that are already published, and hopefully find a solution shortly. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
I’m currently looking at options for continuing the site, but I would require a minimum amount of support, in keeping me updated on your lost pet’s status!
** UPDATE : Thank you to those who have expressed concern, I have not been able to give 100% due to illness, and have neglected many messages, so I apologize for that. I’ve been continuing to post the ads that seem to keep coming in, and have been asked what help is needed by several people.
However, there are two very small requests that seem to go unnoticed and this for over 5 years now. One is the very simple and basic courtesy that I be kept updated when your animals are found, so that the site will run more efficiently.
And the other is that a small contribution could be made to help with the maintenance of the site. It’s just not possible to run the service on my own resources. I’m aware that there are many other free sites to post on, but Petluck is the only bilingual and completely dedicated lost and found website in the city, with archives that have allowed some lost animals to go home many months after their disappearance. Surely that is worth the price of a coffee. Thanks! I hope to be back on track very soon!
I’m hoping to provide a good tool for reuniting lost and found pets with their owners. Send the information on the pet you’ve lost or found to email@example.com with a picture (jpeg) if possible and any details, and I’ll publish it for you here. Please be clear as to the text and contact information you want published, and please send the information in text, not image format, I don’t have time to retype it!! I’ll need, of course, the closest address to place it on the map. (a postal code works really well) I also highly recommend subscribing to your post once published, so that you’ll receive any comments left for you without delay, as they cannot always be forwarded. The form to subscribe will be found just underneath your ad. To access it click on your ad title. (If your notice hasn’t been published within 24 hours, I didn’t receive your message!) Also, please note that your posts stay up until I’m updated !
I also wanted to provide some useful tips as well as links to places that you might also think about listing. As well as putting up posters and checking shelters there are many places to list and not everyone’s familiar with them all. Please feel free to send me any useful links that I might have missed. You’ll find them on the tips and links page. I’m hoping that the site will stay as up to date as possible, and that even if you’re posters are down and listings dropped down further on the classifieds sites, your pet will stay on the map until you’re hopefully reunited.
The only thing I ask in return for this service is that you please keep me informed if you find your pet, or found the home of the animal you took in (just send me an email!). It’s important that the blog be as up to date as possible for it to be most effective. I can’t stress enough how important it is that the attention is completely focused on those still in need. And besides, I’d love to know how things turned out, as would many of my readers! over the years I’ve come to realize just how valuable the happy endings are in helping people to stay positive. And if you think the site is worthwhile and want to see it continue, please consider donating the price of a cup of coffee, your support is much needed.Thanks!
IMPORTANT : On the links page I have included those to city shelters. The Montreal SPCA has a blog where they post their strays, including pets being held by the people who found them. Berger Blanc, started to publish their strays (July 14th, 2011). Laval is now covered by Auberge Zen, you’ll find their strays posted here. On the South Shore, A.M.R. has a page for their strays and les Services Animalières de la Rive-Sud publishes their strays here. But it’s still very important to physically go and check the shelters. Animals are often only kept for 3-5 days depending on their age, condition, and time of year, and if unclaimed they are then either euthanized or put up for adoption. For various reasons your pet might not end up at the shelter serving your area, so check all. It’s not enough to call them. Even if your pet has tags this doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll be notified. It’s best to act as though your pet didn’t have any identification when conducting your search. And please realize it could be many months before your pet shows up !

Hi. I found a dog on Dagenais boulevard around Fabreville. He seems to be a pit/husky mix and he’s very well behaved and knows basic commands. He’s not neutered and he was without a collar. We picked him up and placed him at the Auberge Zen refuge. He’s a big boy, around 2 years old and he seems well taken care of. Didn’t seem to be lost for very long. If the owners are looking for him, they’ll find him at the refuge that I mentioned. He’s there for five days before he’s put up for adoption.

Hello, an adult tabby cat has taken up residence in one of our cat shelters on our back porch. He spends all day and night there. He wears a red collar with no medal and has extra thumbs on his front paws. He is super easy to approach with humans but does not seem to get along with my cats.
If it seems to be your cat or if you wish to take him, contact me! We would like him to be warm for the winter.
