Our mission is to reunite missing companion animals with their owner/guardians.
The failure to provide lost pet services is a major contributing factor to the stray dog population, the feral cat population, and the overcrowding of animal shelters. Every pet dog and cat that is displaced from its owner care is a "stray" that ultimately contributes to the homeless pet population.
Missing Pet Partnership is a grassroots, national nonprofit organization. In 2005, we developed and now manage the first-ever pet detective academy that trains pet detectives who offer community-based lost pet services.
We are looking for animal loving volunteers who are interested in helping us acheive our mission of reuniting lost pets with their families. According to the American Animal Hospital Association's 1995 Pet Owner's Survey, nearly 30% of pet owners in our nation have lost, and never again found, a missing pet.
There is a science to finding lost pets, and it is based on a combination of law enforcement techniques used to find lost people and research into the behavior of lost pets. By helping communities to develop lost pet services, we can alleviate the suffering of lost pets and their owners. We can also have a significant effect on pet overpopulation by returning lost dogs and cats to their owners so they never become strays, and never end up in overcrowded shelters facing an uncertain fate.
We've already trained over 100 pet detectives in the USA, Canada, Mexico, Japan, and Ireland.
