Big storms like we had last night can scare pets. I mean it kind of scared me so I can't imagine being a dog or cat and having no idea what kind of sorcery has descended upon your home. Fight or flight sets in and since there's nothing to fight - several animals flee.

Of course, you should always take them to the local veterinarian or humane society to have them scanned for a microchip. If they aren't chipped, one of the best ways to find a lost pet or find the owner of a found pet is Facebook. Here are some local groups to check.
