Levi is a 4 year old Blue Point Birman and is predominantly a house cat. He must have got out 
at around 7pm last night and we started searching for him as soon as we realised at around 8:30pm. 
WWe haven't seen him since. We have put up posters and posted flyers through neighbours letter boxes 
asking to check garages and sheds etc.

Lost tabby kitten

Please could I let you know of our missing 8 month old kitten. She is grey tabby, quite small. She was wearing a blue collar with a bell and cat flap magnet. She is micro chipped but the paperwork has only recently been sent off. She went missing from the Killamarsh area last Monday 11th march. We are contacting you as we were having work done by a Chesterfield tradesman and are worried that she may have got into his van. Please let us know if you hear of a cat matching her description as her brother and us are missing her.

Please get in touch with us in the first instance if you have news of this kitten.

Lost black and white cat

Has anyone seen an adult black and white cat wandering around and looking lost over the past week?   This is a youngish cat who has gone missing from the Old Whittington area.   His owner is distraught, the cat is normally an indoors resident and won’t be able to find his way around.   If you see a black and white cat who isn’t normally in your area please let us know and we’ll pass the information on.

A Golden Retriever goes missing

Lottie, a Golden Retriever, went missing on Sunday 27th January from her home in Rowsley, Chesterfield.   Lottie is aged 2 years and a much loved pet.   She is 2 years old and somebody must have seen her or know something about where she is.   If you have any information please let us know and we’ll pass it on straight away.

What to do if your pet goes missing:

Make a flyer with a picture of your pet and send it to all the vets in as wide an area as possible.

Notify all the Councils within fifty miles – lost dogs are handed in to the Dog Wardens where they are found – not where they come from.  

Every Local Authority keeps a Lost Dog Register – ring first and then send your pet’s details (your flyer) to each Council.   If they have a picture they should check it with the photo they have on file.

Notify the police – just in case – although they no longer deal with stray dogs they may keep a record or have information.  The police do still deal with stolen pets and dangerous dogs.

Send a flyer to every dog kennels over a wide area – especially those who take in strays for the council.

Put flyers up in Post Offices, Notice Boards and Newsagents especially those near schools.  Children notice dogs and might spot yours.

Try to get details of your lost dog out on the radio, the more people who know the more chance you have of getting your pet back.

Offer a big reward – this is likely to work if your dog has been stolen.   Young working dogs are thieves main targets.  There is a big demand and they are easily sold.

Advertise in country sports magazines.

Never give up hope – we have found dogs for their owners after more than a year has passed.

Missing black and white cat

Please let us know if you see anything of a very pretty black and white cat called Meg.  Her owner is desperate for news and this is what she’s told us –

Meg is black and white, at present she has a patch of fur missing on her neck and on the bottom of her back.  Meg was last seen around 10.30 am on Friday when she managed to escape from the house, she had been kept in because of the snow.  Meg is missing from the High street area of Old Whittington
It is very rare that Meg stays out over night, because she isn’t that keen on the dark and likes her home comforts.  Any information would be gratefully received.

If you see anything or have any news of Meg please let us know and we’ll pass it on straight away.  A photo is on its way.

Lost cat, old and blind, please help









It ‘s a terrible worry when a pet goes missing, even worse when he’s a 17 year old cat who is also blind.  Jasper is much loved and his owner is desperate to find him.   The weather is so cold and we have to hope that some kind person has taken him in.

If you’ve seen him anywhere (lost from the Hady area of Chesterfield) please get in touch and we’ll pass the info on straight away.  Elderly cats do sometimes have a real urge to wander off.  He’s a handsome cat isn’t he, let’s hope we can get him back home soon.

Missing Jack Russell















Isn’t she a beauty?  Sadly this elderly Jack Russell went missing from her owners back garden in Brailsford, Derby on the evening of the 27th December.  She was wearing a collar when she disappeared.   This old lady dog is called Ziggy and is a bit frail with poor vision and hearing and she is not very agile.   She is microchipped.   What could have happened to her?   If you have any information as to her whereabouts it would be much appreciated
