Lost and Found

The Lost and Found working group has primarily been focusing on finalizing a comprehensive module that will serve as a guide for animal shelters in developing robust and actionable approaches to increasing lost pet reunification. The team has also surveyed all of the Tier 1 pilot shelters to drill down even more deeply into what is needed to successfully increase return to owner rates.
