WHO are we and WHAT do we DO?
Lost Dogs of Wisconsin….is a volunteer group dedicated…in helping to reunite lost dogs with their owners, and educate the public on lost dog prevention & dog safety….You can find us on FACEBOOK….which is our primary source of communication with the public….it enables us to educate and notify thousands of people every day of lost dogs in Wisconsin….We are a FREE service to all.
Dog owners fill out a lost dog report, which is found on our main page….an email is sent to the lost dog owner from us, which includes a printable flyer of their lost dog with description and picture….this is immediately posted on our page for everyone to see.
Then a trained (volunteer) caseworker will notify the lost dog owner by phone….and goes over important steps on what to do as soon as their dog goes missing, these steps can increase the chances of finding their dog quickly and safely…Other volunteers are checking & matching internet ads and posts on local animal shelters and rescues, to see if they can find a match with any of our missing dogs.
The caseworker stays in touch with the owners…offering advice, support and helpful tips for them throughout the search process….We also provide the dog owners with other helpful resources, such as:
Websites: A list of helpful, well-known sites for lost dog owners.
PowerPoint Presentations: Provides a visual understanding, on what to do and why.
Phone Conferences: This helps to generate new ideas and recommendations for a specific or unique case.
