Missing Mutts Awareness Day is observed on the second Saturday in June to raise awareness about what to do to bring lost or stolen dogs home.
Missing Mutts is a group of volunteers who came together while searching for two dogs named Buddy & Maddy. The volunteers quickly realized that the public didn't have general awareness about what to do about missing dogs and formed a group to help people find their beloved dogs.
What to do if your dog goes missing
If your dog goes missing, the first thing you should do is contact your local animal shelter or police department. They may have lost and found reports that can help you find your dog. You can also post flyers in your neighborhood and online, and ask your neighbors to keep an eye out for your pup. If your dog is microchipped, be sure to contact the microchip company to update your information and help you find your dog if he is found.
Most importantly, don't give up hope. Dogs have been known to travel long distances to find their way back home. With a little patience and effort, you may just be reunited with your furry friend.
How Missing Mutts Day Unites People
This day is all about community and helping others find their missing dogs. Be on the lookout for stray dogs, pay attention to missing dog posters, and be a good neighbor and help search for a missing dog.
