Finding Lost Animals
With An Animal Communicator
by Shirley Scott
Finding a lost or missing animal is one of the hardest parts of being an animal communicator. Iíd like to explain what happens when Iím trying to help someone locate a missing pet.
When someone calls and asks me to help find a missing pet, I send out telepathic messages to try and reach the pet. The problem with lost pets is they are usually on the run and in a panic. To get clear, precise pictures of where they are is hard because theyíre sending pictures very quickly. This quick information is sometimes incomplete because they are in a state of survival and panic. So many times I can only get a quick glimpse of what they maybe seeing or where they are.
Another problem is that animals donít know what numbers or letters mean and most animals are either color-blind or donít see colors. Or they might be in a field and all I see is tall grass or hay. It maybe a field with cows in it and there could be a hundred of these fields in the same area. And if the animal has taken shelter under a barn or shed, all I might see are the legs and feet of cows or sheep.
When a pet is on the run, they may show me pictures of where they have been because thatís where they found food or water or shelter. This can be helpful but many times because they are always on the move, by the time the owner gets to this place, the animal is long gone. It can be very frustrating for the owner as well as the animal communicator.
And sometimes pets are just out having a good time and theyíll show me pictures of them chasing birds or running in a field. They might not even think that theyíre lost or missing so they donít care if they come back home right that minute or not. Animals live in the present moment so they send pictures of what they are doing in the present moment.
Sometimes Iíll get messages that theyíre getting ready to leave this dimension and pass on to the next and they want to do it their way. This is very hard for us to understand but many times an animal feels the need to just go off by themselves and die. This way theyíre not putting any of their family in harm. Just like when an elephant leaves the herd because they are weak and are going to die. They do this to keep predators away from the herd and to die without passing the death energy on to other elephants.
Many of our pets have this build into their DNA and when they know itís their time to leave, they do.
Humans need to remember that animals think differently than humans do. When an animal is on the run, they are in a survival mode. They are just trying to stay out of danger and survive. This makes them do things we donít and canít understand.
I have people ask, ďwell, why donít they just come home?Ē
Itís because on the path back home, there are many different smells, movements, other animals, other people and all kinds of things thatíll put them on the defensive and make them stray from the path. They may be so afraid that they just find a dry, safe place and lay down.
This happened to me not long ago when I was helping a client find her cat. The cat was right across the street from her in a neighborsí wood shed. The cat could hear her calling to him, but he was so afraid, he didnít want to move. Even when she saw him and he saw her, he didnít move. He waited for her to come over and pick him up and take him home. He had found a safe place and knew as long as he stayed there, heíd be fine. This is how animals think. They can reason but not like humans do.
Please remember that an animal communicator can only tell you what the animal is sending them. It could be very clear pictures or it may not be anything at all. When a communicator isnít getting any messages from an animal, they need to talk to their spirit guides or try other to get messages from other animals. So thereís much more to finding a lost pet than just getting in touch with their energy and seeing where they are.
There can also be misinterpretations of messages. Animal communicators can only interpret what they think the animal is sending them. One time I was helping someone find a dog and I kept getting this picture of him being in a house with a wonderful lady. I told the owners that he was within a five mile radius and in a house.
They went to every house in this rural area but no one had seen the dog. When they called me back I still saw him in a house with a lady and I asked if they were sure they had gone to every house. They said they had, well almost all of them. There was an old abandon house about five miles from them but no one lived there. I told them to go to it.
They found the dog in the old house, hungry and tired but alive and well. When they asked me about the lady I had seen with the dog, I had to ask my spirit guide about it. As it turned out, it was an angel and the dog was just relaying to me what he was seeing. The angel looked like a lady that was watching over him and keeping him safe.
So animal communicators can only report on what they see. And if too many energies or messages come in at one time, it can be confusing for the communicator and the pet. Thatís why itís best to have no more than one or two communicators working on the same lost pet. The pet can get bombarded with telepathic messages from strangers and become even more confused and may shut down. The best thing an owner can do is to just stay calm and start sending the pet telepathic messages about coming home.
Iíve found that if the owner sends messages to the pet, the pet will calm down and many times find its way home. Because your pet already knows your thoughts and energy, he is getting familiar messages that will help him to think more clearly. This means the owner is telepathically calling the petís name and showing them the house and other familiar things. You can send them pictures of loving them or their favorite toy. You can ask the other animals in the house to send them messages too. Get everyone in the house involved. And when you do this, you may even get a message back from your pet telling you where they are.
I hope this will help you understand what an animal communicator has to go through to truly get a picture or message from a lost pet. The best advice I can give humans is to pay more attention to what their pets are doing, where theyíre going and to keep them from getting lost, have a collar on them with their name, your name and a phone number.

In 2000 I had a near-death out-of-body experience and when I recovered, I realized Iíd brought back the power of clairvoyance with me. I do readings on both animals and people and I cross the veil to connect with loved ones that have crossed. Iíve found that this connection helps people who are grieving for a loved one and also helps the person or animal who has past to tell us things they couldn't when we were together on this side.
I also do workshops, speaking engagements, and work with groups or individuals to teach people how to become more clairvoyant. Everyone has a natural ability to communicate telepathically with an animal or other humans; it's something that is build into each of us.
