HELP SEARCHING FOR LOST AND STOLEN DOGS
DogLost are the UK's largest lost and found dog service, and they are FREE to join. Founded by Jayne Hayes in 2003, this national community of thousands of dog owners and volunteers helps to reunite lost dogs with their owners.
The DogLost volunteers can help assist you in the search for your missing dog (or cat). They transfer your details free of charge straight onto the website and offer free advice and support. Your dog is automatically entered on to their forum "dogs lost". They create a missing dog poster that you and others can print off and/or screen capture and they can also be emailed direct from the site.
HELP SEARCHING FOR MISSING DOGS
If your dog goes missing, they can become vulnerable to 'theft by finding'.
Drone SAR for Lost Dogs UK is a multi-award winning free service. Launched by Graham Burton, from South Wales, in July 2017, this volunteer group of over 3,000 drone pilots and more than 2,500 ground searchers has helped reunite over 2,750 lost dogs with their owners.
