Mission

Lost Dogs Arizona works to reunite lost dogs with families. We provide resources, expertise and networking tools to owners and finders of lost dogs in Arizona. Our services help lost dogs, the families that love them as well as the community because every dog reunited with family is potentially, one less that may end up in our shelter system.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Public Outreach

Increase visibility with the public to make dog owners more aware of how to prevent a dog from getting lost and what to do if a dog is lost.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Donating collars to area shelters to ensure that newly adopted dogs go to new homes with a tag on a collar. Newly adopted dogs are much more likely to go missing in the first few weeks. We want to make sure these "high flight risk" dogs have identification as they leave the shelter building. Currently doing this for Maricopa County shelters but interested in expanding to other shelters.

Population(s) Served
Families

Lost Dogs Arizona provides volunteer assistance and materials for owners and finders of lost dogs who arrive at the county shelter and need help. We provide guidance, materials (signs, flyers, etc.) and scan found dogs as they come in. With only a 72 hour stray hold, it's critical that action is taken quickly by the owner of a missing dog. We help that distraught owner directly. Currently doing this for Maricopa County shelters but hope to expand.

Population(s) Served
Women and girls

Lost Dogs Arizona has plans (but no funding yet) to work with organizations who pick up deceased pets on the roadways. We want to make sure they are scanned for a microchip and detailed notes taken that may help a family get some closure if a missing pet is found deceased. Funds will pay for scanners as needed and other materials and costs associated with working with the many organizations who do his work.

Population(s) Served
Women and girls

We plan to develop videos about how to find a dog that has gone missing, including how to use online tools, how to create signs as well as other steps to take.

Population(s) Served
