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.
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!
