THE COMPLETE GUIDE TO LOST PET PREVENTION & RECOVERY

Joseph Andrew Sapia, Author, Patricia Sapia, Author . El Jebel $23.95 (212p) ISBN 978-0-9718336-0-9

Between five and 10 million pets are lost each year, and many of these incidents could have been avoided or resolved more easily had both pet owners and "finders" known what to do, argue these sibling authors. The Sapias have assembled a vast amount of information primarily related to dogs, cats and birds, but also covering ferrets, rodents and snakes. The book is divided by topic; the Prevention section covers such issues as identification, training, shelters, rabies, transporting pets, moving and rescue organizations. The Recovery section discusses how to carry out an effective search for a lost pet including how to organize contacts, where to post flyers and how to avoid scams. In addition to advice, the book is packed with online and print resources, anecdotes from pet owners and many boxed tips, such as how to thwart burglars and the pros and cons of tags and electronic fencing. The extensive resource directory at the end covers commercial companies as well as many nonprofit animal protection groups. This book is an excellent resource for new pet owners, but even experienced pet owners are likely to find some helpful pointers. (Dec.)
