Luzerne County Pet Recovery Services has 2 trained MAR(Missing Animal Response) Technicians that have been tracking, trapping and recovering lost pets for years. Luzerne County Pet Recovery Services is based in Northeastern, Pennsylvania in Luzerne County. The service was started because of a need in the community to help owners of lost pets.
Tracey is also coordinator for our Luzerne County Animal Response Team, which assists animals during natural or man-made emergencies/disasters with training on Large Animal Rescue (Horses, Pigs, Cows and Sheep), Emergency Animal Sheltering and various required FEMA courses. Tracey is also a Humane Police Officer for a local animal shelter and recently has been given the Local Heroes Award for Animal Rescue by the American Red Cross Northeastern Pennsylvania Chapter.
Jeff began assisting his wife a few years ago in finding lost pets and earlier this year (2016) decided to take the MAR course. He is also a volunteer for the Luzerne County Animal Response Team with training on Large Animal Rescue (Horses, Pigs, Cows and Sheep), Emergency Animal Sheltering and various required FEMA courses.
We both share a wonderful passion together as husband and wife to save animal lives. No pet deserves to feel like they have been abandoned. We take great pride in volunteering our time for all the amazing lost pets we can help. We continually stay in-touch with all of our success stories and lost pet families. Some even decide to help and volunteer their time to help others who have lost their furry family members.
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
