The Center for Lost Pets
Imagine, one central location to go to when you've lost or found a pet. That's what we envisioned when we created The Center for Lost Pets. We're here for one purpose - to help get lost pets back home... safe, sound and soon. Whether you have found a pet or lost a pet, we're here to help - because a lost pet is not a lost cause. You can search to see if your lost pet has been found. You can search to see if the pet you have found has been posted as lost. If you don't find a match in our database of lost and found pets, don't give up. And be sure to check back often. New listings for lost and found pets are updated on this site every day.

The Grey Muzzle Organization

Envision a world where no old dog dies alone and afraid... Too many old dogs are abandoned when they need us most.

Many dogs are abandoned in their senior years because their caretakers don’t want to take responsibility for the extra care required as part of the natural aging process. In other cases, a well-loved senior dog may become homeless when their senior person enters assisted living, and there is no place else to go. Some old dogs are rescued from a lifetime of abusive or neglectful situations with, finally, a chance to enjoy life in their last few years.

Through The Grey Muzzle Organization, you can help create happy endings for dogs in these circumstances.
