The MARN Directory is designed to help you find a Missing Animal Response (MAR) Trained group or individual in your area.
The individuals or teams listed in our directory are MAR Trained, please use the contact information in our directory to make sure you are communicating with the proper entity. Unfortunately, many of our members have had their identities or logos stolen to try and steal money from people that have lost their pets. Most if not all of our members will not ask for money using cash apps.
How to Find a Pet Detective using the Directory
The easiest way to find a pet detective that can assist you in your area is to click on the state or province where you live (or where your pet went missing if away from home). This will bring up a map with markers for all the pet detectives in that state and those willing to travel to that state. If you need specialized services, such as a tracking/trailing dog or assistance catching a shy, hard-to-trap animal, then you may want to use the Advanced Search form. Please note that Missing Animal Response Network does not employ the Missing Animal Response (MAR) Technicians listed in this directory and some of those listed are businesses that charge for their services.
How to Find Help if I Can’t Find Help in the Directory
In addition to the resources listed in our Directory, we also have several trained pet detectives who are available for online lost pet coaching, providing answers to your questions and guidance on what you can do to dramatically increase your chances of recovering your lost dog, cat, or other species of pet. Due to the high volume of requests that come into our site, these coaching sessions are offered for a $50.00 fee (payable to the coach you are referred to). If you can not afford this, there may be other coaching options. Our coaches are also managing their own case load, and someone will contact you as soon as there is an available coach who can take your case. For lost pet coaching assistance, go to our CONTACT US page.

As an individual certified in Missing Animal Response, I, along with my team of volunteers, will apply all available resources and knowledge to reunite owners with their lost beloved pets. I am also a Certified Veterinary Assistant, which enables me to give proper emergency medical care, if needed, when any animal is found. Hound Hunters believes that lost pet owners are suffering enough with the loss of their pet, therefore there is absolutely NO charge for our services. As the founder, I dedicate ALL of my time to bring your dog home where he/she belongs! There is NO other service comparable to Hound Hunters in the region. Most other groups who search for lost dogs, either charge an exorbitant rate, or do so in their "free time", and NONE of the volunteer groups has anyone with any of my appropriate, invaluable training in lost dog search and recovery.
Mileage and expenses charged. Donations accepted.

I have been helping reunite lost pets since 2014. Over the years I gained friendships with others in my area who love helping lost pets get home. We've formed an excellent team together!

Arsenal of equipment includes - snappy snares, Tactacam cellular trail cameras (w/ video capability), Reolink Go Plus (live feed camera), cat traps, coyote sized trap, Tomahawk 610D trap (largest produced box trap), 4th gen Missy trap.
Please go to http://www.greatnoses.info and click on the "Contact Us" page to send me information about your lost pet. Because there are a lot of details to exchange at this point, email is the best way for us to communicate, and I WILL respond to your message promptly.
So that you know what to expect:
finding a lost pet can take a lot of physical and emotional workon your part and mine
it's rare to actually find the lost pet on either a dog-supported or humans-only search-either kind of search is just one part of a variety of search & rescue strategies
the search will help focus your follow-up work; with my email/phone support you will need to make & post flyers and/or posters, maintain feeding stations, borrow/buy a game camera to monitor feeding stations and traps, visit shelters, and maybe more
your follow-up work is the MOST important part of getting your pet home again

My own lost dog Rudy, dragged me into the lost pet world. I wanted every piece of information that I could obtain in order to help to bring him home. I found that the more I advocated for him, the more people surfaced requesting information and resources that have not been available in our state.
I am Rudy's voice; he and I advocate for the rights and efforts necessary to recover all lost pets. As a participant in the Delaware Animal Welfare Task Force. I submitted a written proposal as well as a personal presentation to establish a statewide lost and found pet registry. I have collaborated in the development of that registry. While the registry is still in the infancy stage, it did go live in January 2016. It is my hope that other states will follow. Then all states can connect the dots and form one nationwide lost and found pet registry!

LARG (Lost Animal Resource Group) is a volunteer-based East Coast organization that assists in finding and humanely capturing lost family pets, stray dogs, cats and other animals. Typically, these animals can't be easily caught, picked up or captured through ordinary means. Getting these animals to safety often requires patience, strategy, skill and equipment, as well as time and resources.
Our volunteers do this work because we have a passion for saving at-risk animals and helping families. We work on these cases before, during and after our normal work and lives. Most of our volunteers operate in Maryland, however we also serve surrounding areas based on volunteer availability. We also train and network with other humane trappers in other areas. Because of our organization’s specialized experience, we work with families on cases across the United States.
Our organization is very specialized - We focus on field rescue of animals who are not already safely contained; our primary focus is getting them to safety. LARG is currently supported by our volunteers who put their own time and money into this service.
The animals we help to rescue often have no one else who is able or willing to search for them, or take the time to rescue them from their life of danger, suffering and loneliness. These animals might be dumped, lost or stray, but they still deserve to be helped.
