Do you know what to do if your pet is lost?

The Valley's Animal Care and Control Centers are full of lost pets and is a must to check if your pet is lost. The facility is full and pets only have a few days before they are either put up for adoption or euthanized. 
Along with checking in daily at Animal Control there are many rescue pages on Facebook for lost and found animals. A quick search should list several in your area. These pages have been very helpful for families who've lost their pet.

In addition, we have an amazing pet detective working with her team of dogs. 
Deborah Cooke, owner of Missing Pet Detectives, LLC and her canine team of detectives can come to you where her dogs will pick up your pet's scent, allowing them to see which direction he headed. From there, the search is on! Deborah and her team scale the area on foot. Deborah and her team are highly skilled and no strangers to dangerous and treacherous terrain.  

Deborah assists pet owners in recovering their missing animals in various ways.
For some, pet behavioral profiling and a consultation are sufficient to design a recovery strategy. Each lost pet case is unique.

Some cases require in-depth assistance. But the search tool that draws the most interest from Deborah's clients is the tracking dogs

While a K-9 search is not always indicated - or sometimes even possible - in every case, many times search dogs can provide information unavailable by any other method.


Deborah's team of dogs work all over Arizona. Together they have done this work for over 9 years. While rewarding, offering closure and often reconciliation, it can be and is, challenging as stated above. They are often outside for hours, even in the extreme Arizona heat and running in all kinds of terrain. This is not an easy job. 

"It is a joy to work with my dogs to help reunite lost pets with their people, I couldn't think of doing anything else!" Deborah Cooke

We hope you will take a minute to browse Deborah's website where you can read more about her and her team of search dogs. Deborah has several videos and one where she was interviewed by a valley News Station. 
Thank you to Deborah and your  team of canine detectives for helping lost pets get home!

Thank you!

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…

Dogs and Valley Fever

Dogs and Valley Fever What you need to know

Dogs primarily contract Valley Fever (Coccidioidomycosis) in the low desert regions of Arizona, New Mexico, southwestern Texas and the central deserts of California. Dogs accompanying people traveling through these areas or wintering in these warm climates have about the same chance as their owners of being infected.

With the Monsoon season approaching, doctors say there will likely be increased cases of Valley Fever in people as well as in our pets.
Valley Fever is caused by a fungus that lives in the desert soil. As part of its life cycle the fungus grows in the soil and matures, drying into fragile strands of cells. The strands are very delicate and when the soil is disturbed; by digging, walking, construction, high winds-(Monsoons) the strands break apart in to tiny individual spores called arthroconidia or arthrospores.  We get Valley Fever by inhaling the fungal spores living in the dust when it's blown around by disturbance.
