Bring the animal to the shelter
The shelter is usually the first place owners look. As a Finder-Foster you may see the owner in your neighborhood or they may reach out on social media. Contact the foster coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org) and set an appointment to bring he animal back to the shelter. Tell potential owner to contact shelter to be reunited there with their pet.
