"Return" is not a verb - it is an infinitive parallel with find: "... tries to find and return..." ."To" covers both "find" and "return".

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



This question deals with parallel structure. The parallel elements herein are: tries to find and tries to return. Even if the entire phrase is not repeated, parallel structure is still maintained by preserving the form. The only choices which use ‘return’ are B, C and D. Choice C, however, does not make it clear that it is the organization itself which returns the lost pets. In this way there is a slight change in the meaning of the original sentence. D uses the incorrect idiomatic expression ‘tries at finding’, instead of ‘tries to find’. Choice B is the correct answer.
