What to do When you Meet a Stray Pet

When you come across a stray animal it can be natural to want to instantly help reunite the pet with its owner.

However, stray animals can carry diseases and be highly dangerous. That is why it is important to know what steps to take when encountering a stray animal.

Tips for Interacting with a Stray Animal

When you come across a stray animal it is important to act with caution. Some steps you should take when encountering a stray include:

  • If the animal looks violent or sick, do not touch it or go near it. Instead call animal control.
  • If the animal looks safe, approach slowly and check for tags
  • Never let a strange or stray animal go near your face.
  • Wash your hands thoroughly after touching any strange animals.
  • If you are bitten or scratched by an unknown animal, immediately clean the wound and seek medical attention

Interacting with dogs, cats, or any other animal can be more dangerous than many people realize. It is important to always keep safety in mind when approaching a stray pet.
