Regional Animal Services of King County needs volunteers to find lost pets
July 3, 2012
Regional Animal Services of King County needs volunteers to help reunite owners and pets after Independence Day.
Holiday fireworks inevitably scare some pets and cause the animals to run away, so the animal control agency and the nonprofit Missing Pet Partnership plan to train volunteers for Mission Reunite: Help and Hope for Lost Pets.
Missing Pet Partnership founder Kat Albrecht, a police detective turned pet detective, has been involved in finding missing pets since 1997, and founded the organization in 2001.
“The return to owner rate for lost pets at animal shelters across the country is low, but the Mission Reunite program can help our lost pets in King County get back together with their families,” agency Manager Gene Mueller said in a statement. “This exciting program has proven very successful in reuniting owners and their stray pets, but we need volunteers to help continue that success.”
