"We are not Animal Control We just want people to get their dogs back before they get hit by a car or end up in a shelter"
Due to the nature of what we do, we need 1st hand information only for us to conduct a safe and productive search. We understand the feelings of family and friends in a situation like this but without speaking to the owner or legal guardian (This does not mean family members or friends) of the missing pet we will not respond to a request for search but will offer our support and services in other ways.
If you are a friend or family member of the owner of the missing dog, we urge you to have them contact us immediately. We have received many calls from friends or family members of the person that lost their dog to ask for our help and when the dog was recovered without our knowledge they neglected to call us back to let us know, leaving us searching for a dog that is no longer lost. This has happened way too many times in the past. We will only take reports from the owners or legal guardians of the lost dog
****IMPORTANT NOTICE PLEASE READ ****
If a search dog is needed PLEASE do NOT accept the help from anyone that calls you!
Any professional rescue group will not contact you. The Lost Dog Search & Rescue will put you in contact with an accredited and certified Dog Tracker that will work with our group to assure the best results. We have found in the past other non certified tracking dogs and groups will hinder the progress of our searches not enhance them.
Make sure to notify your local police and Animal Control, your dog may have already been found and sitting in the Shelter
If you spot a stray contact your local police or animal control agent ASAP!
These are the areas we are able to help search:
*** we wish we could cover a wider search area but we can't ***
We will only accept requests from the owner or legal guardian of the lost Dog
If you spot a stray contact your local police or animal control agent
*** Please keep in mind we are a volunteer group and search for free. Due to work and prior commitments it's sometimes difficult to gather the team together on short notice and we will do our best to get to you in a timely manner.***
