How to return a found insect to its owner? Our advices will help you on this difficult matter!

In some cases, approaching and trying to catch an animal will not be the best idea. Just make sure that the pet is safe and try to remember any ads or flyers you saw about the similar missing insects. If you succeeded - immediately contact the insect owner and wait for his arrival, controlling movements of the insect found.

If it happened that you've taken the found animal from the street, the first thing you need to do is to inform as many people as you can about the found insect. Spreading information about this is easy by using online map-based pet search services, such as Petrieve. You may share a page of the found mantis or bug, created on Petrieve, in many popular social networks, such as Facebook, Twitter, VKontakte and others. Look for ads about similar missing insects and feel free to contact their owners. Stock up with flyers of the amphibian found to post and distribute them. To compose and print flyers about the found insect, you can also use our service. In addition to everything, it is also possible to use television and newspapers.

Sometimes it would be reasonable to report to local law enforcement offices, animal shelters or pounds, veterinary clinics, pet shops and other organisations of this kind. Here you will also need some flyers and posters to hand them out.

If you are looking for the owners of an insect - for your convenience use the map of missing pets. Find the place where you've found the insect, look at the markers on the map in the vicinity (click them to get more info) - maybe the owners are already looking for an insect that you have!
