To send a lost/found/saw
dog e-mail, click "Post" on the left hand side of the K9Alert home page in Yahoogroups at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/K9Alert
You do NOT need to change your Toolbar and/or post your profile. You can also post your pet's pictures. Please include
pertinent info in the subject line, e.g., Lost Poodle, Dog City, Muttville.
For a lost dog, give a clear description
of your dog, the location where it was lost, & your contact info. Also check http://www.petharbor.com for pictures of dogs
in the shelters.
If you see a stray dog, please post an e-mail describing the dog, the location, direction it
is heading, approximate time and any other helpful info (sample: saw small white dog, on A Street, heading east towards B
Road in Y City, 8:00 a.m.) If possible, please provide an e-mail address and/or phone number. This will help an owner track
a stray dog and contact you with any questions. Please TRY TO GIVE THE DOG SOME FOOD & WATER.
If you find a dog,
please post a found dog e-mail (sample: found dog, small, on A Street, in Y City) & your contact info. You can also place
free found dog ads in newspapers & publications (LA Times, Pennysaver). If you post a found dog ad in a newspaper or publication,
always ask the caller to identify the dog to prevent bad people from getting the dog and do unspeakable things to it.
I watched over my dogs like a hawk. My gates were locked 24/7. I stayed home when the gardeners were there to make
sure they did not leave the gates open. I stayed home whenever there were warnings of thunderstorms. There was absolutely
no warning of a thunderstorm the day that Hurricane jumped the fence in a panic. When I got home, he was gone. Watchful as
I am, accidents happen. It can happen to anybody. I know that I will worry about him for the rest of his life span, wondering
if he has shade from the sun, shelter from the cold and rain, if he has cool grass to lie down, how he is doing in a thunderstorm,
if he is well taken of, if he got hit by a car.
There was no help when I searched for Hurricane. Hopefully, K9Alert
will help a heartbroken owner find his/her lost dog, & help bring a stray dog home.
