Hello! I am Deborah Cooke, owner of 
Missing Pet Detectives.

For more than five years my dogs and I have worked hard to reunite lost pets with their families.

Forget that silly movie, what we do is nothing like that! 

When a pet goes missing, most people don't know what they should be doing to recover their pet. They can waste valuable time on ineffective things. 

When I am contacted by someone with a lost pet, I take a detailed accounting of the situation to determine the best recover strategy. This strategy can be affected by breed, species, pet personality, weather and time since the escape, among other things. 

Sometimes the pet can be recovered by simply coaching the pet parent on recovery methods. 
But other times, my team of search dogs is utilized to follow the trail of the missing animal. 

K-9 searches are not indicated (or even possible), in all cases, but many times the search dogs can uncover vital clues to a missing pet's whereabouts, if not the animal itself. 

Sadly, not all of the animals we locate are still alive. In those cases, all we can provide is closure. 

Primarily we look for lost dogs and cats, but will do searches for other species too. 
Except snakes! 

While we are based in the Phoenix area, we work all over the country. 
This is wonderfully rewarding as well as physically and emotionally demanding work. 

It is a joy to have my dogs as my co-workers! 
There is nothing else I'd rather be doing! 

If you or any of your friends or family ever lose a beloved pet please feel free to contact me! Better yet, make sure to have my telephone number handy in your cell phone 480-751-9700

If you see posters of lost pets, also feel free to contact the pet owners and share my information. 

Please feel free to visit my business website where you can meet all of the canines, see a little more about me, and view some Television Video Footage of our service. 

Thank you! Deborah Cooke

Okay, we all live in Arizona because the weather is almost perfect, the sun is almost always shining, the golf courses are luscious, there are multiple and beautiful wide open spaces and endless hiking trails! 

Surprisingly enough these are also places where some “not so delightful” inhabitants hang out in our state! You've heard the news this past week...... Snakes bites are on the rise!! Again! 
Here are a few simple tips to help keep you safe.

If you hike: 
 • Tap ahead of you with a walking stick before entering an area where you can't see your feet. Snakes will try to avoid you if given enough warning. • When hiking in an area known to have snakes, wear long pants and boots if possible
 • Consider purchasing a snake kit Avoid rock piles or tall green grass/bushes where snakes like to rest. 

About 150 people in Arizona are bitten every year. 
Some of Arizona’s rattlesnakes can also be lethal. 

Scottsdale is notorious for having snakebites and s…

National Adopt a dog month

National Adopt a dog month  And National Adopt a Shelter dog month

Are you thinking about adopting a dog? Has the thought crossed your mind in the past few months? If so, that's great! This is the perfect month for you to get down to business and do just that!

You might be looking simply for a companion, maybe a hiking pal, a friend for your grandparents or parents, how about an agility hopeful, or just a happy, warm face to welcome you home each day? Then this might just be the perfect timing!

Across the valley there are numerous places that you can choose from to adopt a dog. Many Shelters are full and have weekend discounts so they can open up space for new dogs. Unfortunately some will be placed on the E-List almost immediately due to its breed, temperament or health.

A dog that is on the "E-List" (to be euthanized) is commonly a dog that might have growled when captured or put into a kennel, but it doesn't necessarily mean they are aggressive.

They were SCARED.
