Thank you for your interest in volunteering with our organization. Reuniting lost dogs is very rewarding, and creates happiness - not only for the dog and their family, but also for the people who help make it happen. That can be YOU!
All you need is a computer or smart phone, which means you can volunteer from home during the hours that are convenient for you. We need responsible, detail-oriented people who can commit to volunteering on a consistent basis.
Please take a few minutes to look over our website and Facebook page to learn a bit about us. We are the Florida arm of Lost Dogs of America, a coalition of 35 states working to reunite lost dogs. We post each listing to Facebook, Pinterest, and Twitter, but we are more than just a posting service. It is our belief that providing effective advice on how to find a lost dog, or reunite a found one, is the key to success.
We're proud to be partnered with HelpingLostPets.com. HeLP provides free flyers, and a map-based, searchable database of lost and found pets. All of their services are 100% free to the public and shelters. We're working to get all lost/found pets listed in one central database. Imagine how easy it will be when all listings (shelters and the public) are in ONE easly searchable place that is accessible 24/7.
The ASPCA estimates 40-60% of pets in shelters are lost. Many of these pets have families desperately searching for them. They have a very limited amount of time to find their pet before he/she is placed for adoption, or unfortunately may be euthanized. Giving owners the tools to find their lost pets will help not only that pet, but another pet who needs that valuable kennel space at the shelter. Reuniting lost pets will help decrease shelter euthanasia rates. Many animal lovers want to make a difference, but aren't able to go to the shelter during the hours the shelter is open, or are uncomfortable in a shelter environment. If this describes you, or you just want to make a difference, Lost Dogs Florida is the perfect fit for you!
We are an all-volunteer group, so all of our services are 100% free! We believe you'll enjoy helping reunite lost dogs with their families, and we're excited to have you join our team!
