4 days found or refund.
We have reorganized our 4 days search option to be more effective. We cannot promise that we will find your pet but we can assure you that we will do everything we can to bring your pet home. The search is conducted for 4 days, weather conditions will determine if the search time warrants an extension. Volunteers in your area decide where to conduct their search, based on your pet’s last known whereabouts. Cats are more likely to stay close to the house while dogs are inclined to roam. Bear in mind that a Golden Retriever can walk 15 miles in a day. Small pets, often picked up by Good Samaritans, may end up a considerable distance from home. For this reason, it is vital to complete an information package as soon as possible. It is up to volunteers to determine if there are reasons to stop the search. The cost of this additional service is $ 60.00 If the search is not successful, you may qualify for a refund. However, refunds are not issued automatically. Please refer to the section Request Refund below to apply. Volunteers participating in the search for your missing pet are private individuals. They offer this service from the goodness of their hearts, and because of their sincere love for pets. No personal information will be released without their authorization. Volunteers participating in local searches do not attach flyers or knock on doors. Regulations vary from state to state and may differ considerably even in neighboring cities and towns.
