The Buddy System - Please Join Us and Help Reunite

Our group is growing...please join the Buddy System, named after Buddy, an American Staffordshire Terrier. Buddy's owner, Heather was one of the very first people I was in contact with who was searching everywhere for her missing pet. Heather found Buddy in Tylertown through a series of contacts, connections and many people being on the lookout for him. Many links in the chain.

It's time for everyone who has internet access and at least an hour a day to become a Buddy and help search for someone's lost or missing pet. I have a long list of people who are actively searching, and you will be matched with one (or more depending on your availability) of them. Many of these people have no or limited internet access. They are all grateful for anything and everything you do.

You will be sent an email with all the information on what to do and where and how to look.

If you are already searching for someone's lost or missing pet, please let us know here so we can keep this well-coordinated. The goal of this is to make sure that there are not 20 people all looking for the same pet, while 19 other pets go without anyone looking for them.

At this time we are only working with those owners who ask for assistance and support.

If you are a pet owner who would like a Buddy, please send an email to: noanimalleftbehind@gmail.com
and provide as much information as possible about your pet, including your phone number and an alternate phone number. You will be contacted as soon as a Buddy is found to help you.

If you are fostering an animal and would like help locating its owner, please send an email to: noanimalleftbehind@gmail.com and provide a complete description as well as a good contact number and we will do our best to have someone call you.

Here are some additional things to consider:
Collars were removed from most pets at Lamar Dixon for a variety of (mostly stupid) reasons. Unfortunately when these collars were removed, the information on the tags was also removed.

Many pets were rescued by independent rescuers and did not go through Lamar Dixon. Many of these groups have their own websites which I will do my best to list here as I learn of them. Tonight I traced a dog who was rescued in New Orleans to an animal hospital in Mississippi to a shelter in Maryland and from there to a foster home. The good news is that this dog is safe and healthy and while I hope it is the one I've been looking for, at least it is hopefully one that someone is looking for.

Additional websites to check for your pet:

(these are the pictures of the animals that are being fostered by the Humane Society of Calvert County. The phone number for the shelter contact person is: 301-904-5528; the number for the HSCC is 410-257-4908 - expect to get voice mail only.


Reunion: Lazarus has been found !

Dottie has been found...

but Charlie is still missing.

At the end of the day there are many animals on my mind; Candy, Oscar & TJ, Chelsea, Dutchess, Egraine, the four small dogs that were left behind in a trailer in Empire, LA, and many more. But a few I think about all the time: Clearview, Mary's 12 year old black lab mix who looks like an angel; Lazarus, Kim's sweet and beautiful orange tabby, and Charlie & Dottie.

As the family was preparing to evacuate, the dogs sensing the danger of the approaching hurricane, ran away. The family had no choice but to leave without them. Charlie was spotted by a neighbor last week, so we are hopeful that he will soon be found. He is a male Chow mix, 2 1/2 years old with a soft light-medium brown coat. He has a purple tongue, curled tail and before Katrina weighed around 90 lbs. The family lived in Buras, Plaquemines Parish. If anyone reading this will be in that area soon or knows anyone who will be, please look for Charlie so he can be reunited with his big sister Dottie and the rest of the family who misses him so much.

There weren’t many (if any) rescuers working in that area, so if anyone can get there to search for animals wandering around, please do so. Bring food and drinking water. If there are animals you see but can’t get, try to take a picture and write down all the information you can. If you email me the pictures I’ll get them posted.
