Who we are:

Group of volunteers who saw the need  to provide no cost resources to the owners of lost dogs to increase the chances of locating and being successfully reunited with their dog. We also provide education for dog owners on preventing the loss of their dog. The program also benefits local animal control and shelters by decreasing the number of “owned strays” entering the animal control/shelter system and increasing the chances of finding an owner once the dog is in their care.


  • To educate and empower owners with resources and tools to assist them in locating their lost dogs.
  • Provide finders of lost dogs with resources to facilitate more reunions with owners.
  • Reduce the number of “strays” in shelters and animal control facilities.
  • Educate the public on keeping their dogs safe.

The Lost Dogs of America website was created and is maintained by the two original founding members of the Lost Dogs network: Lost Dogs of Wisconsin and Lost Dogs Illinois.   We developed this website to share the articles, ideas and resources that we have gathered from our experience in the successful recovery of over 20,000 dogs.

Please feel free to browse and share our articles.  We do ask that you give us credit for any reprints or shares of our material and that you do not remove or change our logos. Thank you!
