Craigslist is still used by individuals who have lost or found a pet. One of the attractive features of Craigslist is to use anonymity for your contact info. However, our Missouri Lost & Found Paws team wants to help our communities be aware of the following tips:
- List either your email address or phone number. Using the anonymous feature can sometimes cause emails sent to you to end up in a Spam folder. When you have a lost or found pet, time is of the essence. Don’t risk your valuable time by missing someone trying to contact you!
- If you choose to use the anonymous contact feature, make sure you check your email OFTEN!
- Don’t ever meet someone alone. Use the ‘safe zone’ meeting spots set up all throughout our communities. It is best to take a friend with you. If you must go alone, text the address and contact info of the person you are meeting to someone you trust, for safety precaution.
