Lost NMDR Dog

Dogs can and will get lost either through accident, carelessness, or just sheer genius on the part of a dog. Mill dog survivors have additional issues that make them high flight risks. They can be terrified of almost anything and will bolt at noises, unexpected movements, visual stimuli, or people. If your NMDR dog goes missing, act immediately! Start at the top of the list below and follow all the steps in order.

How National Mill Dog Rescue will help you

Every dog we foster or adopt out is important to us. National Mill Dog Rescue will help locate your dog as much as we can. Our help includes and may be limited to the following:

  • Communicating the information to the NMDR community through email and Facebook
  • Helping the owner with creating flyers, posters, handouts
  • Helping the owner set up, but not fund, alerts on various pet locater Web sites; and
  • Helping the owner organize and direct a search team (basic area search, pass out flyers, etc).

The following steps are for dogs that are being fostered or were adopted from National Mill Dog Rescue ONLY. We do not search for non-NMDR dogs.
