**Our team, which consists of 100% Rescue Volunteers, will do our very best to assist the owner in finding their lost pet, as it is our passion to save every single lost pet. Due to the high volume of lost reports we receive, we may have limited number of volunteers and resources, and may not be able to assist on every search. Please follow our search protocols that we have listed in detail on our Lost A Pet tab at  

**It is SO important that the owners partner with us and are highly involved in the rescue mission.

  • Educate the community about what steps to take once they have lost their pet(s).
