Sometimes phone calls and wanted posters just aren't enough to bring our furry friends home when they go missing.
If so, Springfield Patch is here to help.
You can submit an announcement to let the community know and ask for help in bringing your lost pet home.
First, click the bolded " Announcements" link under the "News" tab at the top of any page.
Then click " Add an Announcement" on the right-hand side of the page.
From there, enter a title and whatever body information you want about your pet. Make sure you select the "Lost and Found" category under "Column."
To help neighbors better identify you pet, we suggest you also upload photographs of your pet by clicking "Upload Photos and Videos."
(See the images in this story for screen grabs if you are unclear what the links look lik on the page.)
