A Local Pet Detective Is On The Case! And her name happens to be Kat... - Blog - MyNorthwest.com

Pretty interesting story about an ex cop and dog trainer who has started a business finding lost pets, primarily by using tracking dogs, although a bunch of other techniques are in play too.

He escaped in November and in March we caught him on camera. We were able to determine what house he was living under and caught him in a trap within two hours. Then we flew him back to California for the reunion. It was amazing."
Returning the pets to their tearful owners is the most rewarding part of the job.
Nice story tracked down by KIRO reporter Rachele Belle.

This is a great story. What a wonderful thing to be doing. I can see were people involved find it so rewarding and if I had a lost pet and someone helped me to recover it I certainly would be ever so grateful.

A friend recently told me a story about a school crossing guard who had a sideline involving collecting strays in the neighborhood in hopes owners would post them as missing and in gratitude and relief for their safe recovery give/pay him a reward.
