The admin team of Missouri Lost & Found Paws processed 8,309 animals in 2014. That includes lost, found, reunited, RIP, sightings, found and rehomed. That is 8,309 unique animals. I have to account for a margin of error as we are a manual effort at this time, so even if I consider a 10% margin of error, that is 7,479 pets. SEVEN THOUSAND FOUR HUNDRED SEVENTY NINE.
And that number isn’t even a full reflection of the lost and found pets that shelters take in daily.
“Houston – we have a problem”.
