Pet Detective Directory

How to Find a Pet Detective using the Directory

The easiest way to find a pet detective that can assist you in your area is to click on the state or province where you live (or where your pet went missing if away from home).  This will bring up a map with markers for all the pet detectives in that state and those willing to travel to that state.  If you need specialized services, such as a tracking/trailing dog or assistance catching a shy, hard-to-trap animal, then you may want to use the Advanced Search form.   Please note that Missing Pet Partnership does not employ the Missing Animal Response (MAR) Technicians listed in this directory and some of those listed are businesses that charge for their services.
