DCAP Launches Lost Pet Network

The Dallas Companion Animal Project today announced the launch of the DCAP Lost Pet Network, an online website providing a wealth of information to help lost pet owners and pet finders.

According to Home Again, 1 in 3 pets will become lost sometime during their lifetime, and without ID 90% of those pets will never be reunited with their owners.  All pets are individuals. Research has shown that to be successful in finding your lost pet, or reuniting a found pet, it is critical to employ techniques that are both species-specific, and behavior-specific, and you need to  take into consideration why he left, his temperament (or personality), the circumstances surrounding his loss, and the human factor.

According to the Humane Society of the United States, many more lost pets could be reunited with owners given the right tools and support.  The DCAP Lost Pet Network provides you with the resources, tools, and support you need, online and available 24/7.

To access the Lost Pet Network, visit www.DallasAnimals.org and look for Lost Pet Network.

Be a Hero to a Pet and Owner in Need

The DCAP Dallas Pets For Life program (PFL) goes directly into low income Dallas neighborhoods with pets in need, offering education and resources to help people better care for their pets.

Our last vaccination outreach clinic was so successful that we couldn’t vaccinate every pet that showed up! So on August 24, we will hold a special event and invite those pet owners we weren’t able to assist to come out and get their pets vaccinated for free.

Here’s how you can help: DCAP needs to pay for 200 pet vaccinations at $21.00 per pet. That comes to $4,200.00. Think of it as volunteering; you volunteer to pay for one vaccination or even part of one – just $5.00 – and you’ve contributed to the well being of your community. You’ve helped a disadvantaged pet owner keep their pet healthy and happy.

You are a hero to a pet and their owner. You are a hero to us!
