The MARN Directory is designed to help you find a Missing Animal Response (MAR) Trained group or individual in your area.
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.

If you click on a state/province, this will bring up a list of all the MARN trained individuals or businesses in that state AND those willing to travel to that state.
I offer you my experience, skills and knowledge to assist owners of missing pets to use their time and money efficiently to locate their lost pet safely. I offer phone consultations nationally to give effective search and recovery advice. Locally I coordinate and conduct aggressive searches for missing pets. I am skilled in recovering dogs others deemed to be hard to capture. I have a Certified Cat Detection dog Rita May, that assists on lost cat searches and recoveries.
When a pet goes missing, love is on the line. Time, strategy, and dedication can make all the difference to reunion. Your dog, your cat, and you matter to us. Every search is different, and not every owner needs the same kind of help! We can assist in the ways you need it most. We offer consulting services (search strategy, signage, and social media) and, when available, ground support and K9 area search, cat detection and remains detection search.
Our all-volunteer search and support services are free to owners and rescues searching for their missing pets. The WagBack Lost Pet Search Team is headed by Susannah Charleson, CPDT-KA, a 14-year search-and-rescue K9 handler and search/service dog trainer, who completed cross-training in lost pet search techniques with Kat Albrecht in 2016 and the Missing Animal Response Technician Field Course. Charleson has worked search for missing persons since 2001 and for lost pets since 2015 . WagBack formalized in 2016.
Because we are an all-volunteer team, we limit our case-load to a number we can successfully support. Even if we are unavailable to mount a ground search for you, we may be able to help you search strategically through our phone consultation services.

LARG (Lost Animal Resource Group) is a volunteer-based East Coast organization that tracks, finds and humanely captures 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.
Mileage and expenses charged. Donations accepted.

1. Search Strategy and Consultation
2. Awareness Generation Assistance
3. Humane Capture of Skittish Dogs
4. Lost Dog Prevention Education
The Retrievers created the Missy Trap and the Raytripper electronic gate triggering system, two innovations that have proven highly successful at capturing skittish dogs, even those that will not enter a conventional trap. Our designs are shared freely with the public, and we have helped owners nationwide build and successfully use their own Missy Trap and Raytripper. Tutorials and schematics can be found in the Resources area of our website.

Trained Missing Animal Response Technician and Licensed Private Investigator in Ontario that provides missing pet research and recovery advice and consulting by text and email.
Laura is a trained MAR Technician with 10 years experience in assisting owners in locating lost pets. Over the years I have established a network with other Missing Animal Response Teams throughout Southern Ontario, & often collaborate with various Animal Control Agencies to bring missing pets home safely and quickly. Offering telephone/email consultations, poster design /placement, mapping & tracking, humane trapping and surveillance. Specializing in hard to capture pets and those truly lost souls who have no families looking for them. I have designed and built several large sensor activated pen traps similar to the Missy trap which has proven to be invaluable in securing hard to capture pets.
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.
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!
