How does Found By Phone work?
When you call Found By Phone, we first assess critical information required for every missing pet. Then, we develop a complete action plan that outlines tasks on location, what to do at sightings, instructions for luring your pet out of hiding, recommendations based on maps/location, how to generate sightings, and more.
We are committed to supporting owners until pets are found or the search is ended. In most cases, pets and owners can be reunited by using our Found By Phone program. A simple phone call begins the process.
Do you need a tracking dog?
Let Found By Phone help you decide.
There are some situations where a tracking dog cannot help. A tracking dog is one of many tools that can help humans figure out what to do and where. If we recommend a tracking dog, we can refer you to a trusted K9 team in your area. Hiring for-profit tracking dogs can be very expensive, and the costs mount with every visit, so it’s important to use them wisely.
One of the most important services that Found By Phone offers is providing screened, qualified local resources. Unfortunately, there are con artists who may attempt to take advantage of you during this stressful time. These scams can actually prevent recovery of your beloved pet. Unfortunately, there are also unethical trackers and unscrupulous individuals to be avoided. We work to ensure that you and your pet receive quality, legitimate, local support.
What if my pet may have been stolen?
If it is determined that your pet has been stolen, we can provide referrals to licensed private detectives who can assist you in locating and recovering your pet. Sadly, this is a more common occurrence than most might guess. Part of the Found By Phone critical assessment addresses this possibility.
