Video About Missing Animal Response and Kat Albrecht
Recorded in 2011, this video (filmed for a pitch for a reality TV show) demonstrates what Missing Animal Response (MAR) is and how professionally trained volunteers and for-profit “pet detectives” use high-tech equipment, search dogs, animal capturing tools, and knowledge of lost pet behaviors to help recover lost dogs and cats.
