Lost Dogs Illinois (LID) is a nonprofit corporation organized exclusively for charitable and educational purposes of reuniting families with their lost dogs which will in turn decrease the number of homeless animals coming to shelters and/or animal control facilities.
In 2010 we saw the need to help Illinois residents in the recovery of their lost dogs. Many people give up, do not have the resources to help them, or the money to pay for a professional “pet detective”. By providing a service, we will provide resources and education to assist people in their search of lost dogs.
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.
