Missing Pet Detectives
|Deborah and her Team|
July 4th is one of the most devastating holidays for pets who get lost. With the loud noises, party favors and activities, many dogs cannot tolerate the day's events and either hide or run. It is typically not until the next day that most owners realize a pet is gone. There are places to turn to like your local animal shelters but many of them are busy in the streets picking up the pets from the night before. You may not find your pet for another day if it is even at the shelter. Yes it is important to check with them and at least file a missing pet report in case your pet is brought in, especially if they are microchipped. But what else can you do? Where do you start? How much information do you include on a "Missing Pet" Poster?
Our very unique, nationally known pet expert can assist you with many questions you have if you find yourself in the above situation. She is an expert in her field and one of just a few in the entire country that offers this unique service. We are extremely proud of her and honored she is part of the Az Pet Professionals Network Group.

"Some sources put the number as high as one in three animals that will go missing in their lifetime. The frantic activity many people engage in to attempt to recover their lost furry
friends is not always effective.
For those with lost pets, help is available. I offer consultations to put together an action plan for pet recovery. This generally involves detailed questions regarding the pet’s loss, and behavioral profiling.
In some instances, I use search dogs to follow the track of a missing animal. While K-9 assistance is not indicated (or even possible) in all cases, it can provide information and leads that are not available from any other source.
And, ideally, the dogs run right up to the lost animal.
For those of us with dearly loved pets, the loss of one can be devastating. Working to recover
these lost ones is without a doubt the most rewarding thing an animal lover like myself can do."
Deborah is based in Arizona but will travel Nationally to assist with lost pets.
