Not All Stray Dogs Are Homeless
Thursday, 23 April 2015

April 23 is National Lost Dog Awareness Day. Shelters and rescues across the United States use this day to bring attention to the many dogs in their care who have family looking for them. We live in a world where people sometimes assume the dogs they find are unwanted. Lost Dog Awareness Day has the stats to prove them wrong.



Lost Dogs of America (LDOA), a coalition of states, including Texas, has documented over 42,000 reunions since 2011. Lost Dogs of Texas has helped with 8,000 reunions. LDOA facilitated these reunions by providing tips to owners, by using Facebook pages for individual states, and by providing free flyers courtesy of HelpingLostPets.com.

A little prevention can save a lot of stress. Remember:

  1. Always keep your dog on a leash when outside your home.
  2. Your dog should always wear a collar that has current license, rabies, and ID tags attached.
  3. Get your dog microchipped.
