Thanks AARF

Recently, our 10-year-old dog went missing from our home in Errington.

Recently, our 10-year-old dog went missing from our home in Errington. Through the help of AARF (Arrowsmith Animal Resource Foundation), social networking and reported sightings from many caring citizens, we were able to track him and, to our huge relief, find him alive and well 11 days later.

We wish to thank each and every person who helped in bringing about his return, especially Sarah Weikum for staying and keeping him in sight until my husband arrived, as well as Darcy Kydd of AARF, who spends enormous amounts of time and energy in reuniting lost pets with their owners.

Until our dog went missing we were not aware of organizations like AARF. or FLED (Find Lost and Escaped Dogs) and FLEC (for cats). They provide a huge amount of knowledge, support and hands-on aid to people facing the heart-breaking situation of a missing pet. Anyone needing their help can find their websites online, or on Facebook.
