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 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.

PT4 Street Dog Rescues is committed to safely trapping hard-to-catch street dogs in the community of Austin, Texas by surveillance, monitoring, and then captures with humane animal traps and enclosures. Because it is just me, I limit my case-load to one dog at a time. Please go back to the tab on this site “Lost Pet Help” It has the latest information on lost pet recovery.
I am not a “rescue group” that boards, fosters or shelter’s dogs. I cannot take in dogs that I capture. I work with rescue groups, and Good Samaritans to place a captured dog in a foster home, forever home or no-kill organization.
