Today is National Lost Dog Awareness Day




The Lost Dogs of America announces the first National Lost Dog Awareness Day (NLDAD), which is being held on April 23. According to a statement posted on lostdogsillinois.org and on lostdogsofwisconsin.org, the directors of Lost Dogs Illinois and Lost Dogs of Wisconsin - Susan Taney and Kathy Pobloskie - created the "canine-centric holiday" in order "to bring attention to all dogs that are lost each year. On a happier note, NLDAD also celebrates the thousands of lost dogs successfully reunited with their families."

Their slogan "Not all stray dogs are homeless" is to remind people that the dog they see alone and roaming the street or field may very well be someone's lost dog.


Taney states on lostdogsillinois.org, “When a dog goes missing, many families give up looking for their lost pet. National Lost Dog Awareness Day was created to give hope to the families still looking for their dogs and remind the public that not all stray dogs are homeless” explains Taney. “One of our most recent success stories was finding a beagle named Charlie. He was missing for almost two months in the most brutal winter ever. We never gave up, and neither did Charlie’s foster family. Together, and with the help of our social media following, Charlie was trapped and he was successfully reunited with his foster family. Never doubt a dog’s ability to survive.”

Be sure to check out the WSAW News Channel 7 broadcast featuring Lost Dogs of Wisconsin HERE where they chat about how folks can list a dog and how they go about finding a lost dog, including important tips.

The Lost Dogs mission is in practice in these states: Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, New Jersey, Texas, and Wisconsin and fall under the umbrella Lost Dogs of America organization. You can also find Facebook pages for these under Lost Dogs of (State), as well as Lost Dogs of America. Postings are free, and can then be shared throughout the social media world in an attempt to help find and reunited lost dogs.

21,000 dogs have been REUNITED with their families since 2010!

Through the combined efforts of the Lost Dogs states mentioned above, along with their volunteers and more than 150,000 fans, a reported 21,000 dogs were reunited with their families. That is tremendous! Bravo to the Lost Dogs groups!

Lost Dogs of America share the following poster with tips should you find a dog:


On my FiveSibes: Siberian Husky K9 News & Reviews Facebook page, I have compiled an ever-evolving list of resources available to folks if they have lost or found a dog. You can find the list - and also feel free to send me info to update it - at: Lost & Found Siberian Husky/Pet Listings, which is listed in the "Notes" section on my community Facebook page. *Note: this is a public page. You do not have to have a Facebook page to view it).

Speaking of Siberian Huskies, since this is a Husky blog, I also
want to add that the Lost/found Husky Dogs on Facebook is a valuable resource for folks who have lost or found a Siberian Husky in ANY state. You can share a photo and contact information for free on a lost or found Husky and then that link can also be shared throughout the social media.


There is also a national Lost & Found Siberian Husky Registry through the Siberian Husky Rescue of Florida, where postings are listed for free. Visit the link for info and to see the Huskies that are posted there.



Thank you to all who help find the lost and found dogs!
