    Dog bites pose a serious health risk to our communities and society.

    A site I originated for one of my dogs when he went missing. Through extensive working and marketing efforts, we did get him back after 6 months. The site now houses pet tips, rescue information, and general resources and information to help if your pet is missing. There is no charge for access to any of the information and there’s nothing to sign up for. It’s all there to use, since if you’re pet is missing, you’ve got enough stress on your plate.
