National Database for lost/found GRs on FB now up and running

https://www.facebook.com/lostandfoundgoldenretrievers

UPDATE: Site is now up and running




COMING SOON -- The only national database dedicated to reuniting lost Golden Retrievers, Golden Doodles and other Golden mixes with their owners.

Our Web site is under development and will launch soon. Once operational, you will be able to list your missing dog in our database or search for the owner's listing if you have found a dog.

Why are we building this database? Because while social media like Facebook excels at spreading awareness of lost dogs, it lacks the ability to broadly list or search for a specific dog.

If you have found a dog, our database will enable you to enter criteria such as gender, coat color, location and your choice of keywords to search our listings for the owner. If you have lost a dog, you'll be able to list your missing dog and upload up to three photos. A text window will give you the opportunity to include specifics about your missing dog that can function as keywords.

For example, if your missing Golden is blind in one eye, including this information in your listing will ensure that your dog's record will be displayed when a finder enters "blind" in a keyword search.

Searches can be limited to a single state, or conducted nationwide.

Please Like this page if you would like our updates -- including an announcement of when the database has gone live -- to appear in your news feed.

If you are interested in volunteering to help us enter information on stray dogs held in shelters, please leave a comment here.

Testing Phase of new Database for lost/found GRs

https://www.facebook.com/Friends.of.Golden.Retrievers



Owners of lost Golden Retrievers, Golden Doodles or other Golden mixes are needed to help test a new database-driven site dedicated to reuniting lost dogs with their owners. The site will enable a nationwide search of lost Goldens/Golden mixes using specific search terms and keywords. If you are missing a GR or GR mix, please contact Devon Thomas Treadwell via the new Lost and Found Golden Retrievers FB page for details on how to get your dog listed in the database during the testing phase. The record will remain live and findable for as long as your dog is missing.

The database is now live! Please list your lost or found Golden or Golden mix on the database here:

Lost and Found Golden Retrievers

This is the only searchable database dedicated to missing Goldens. By listing your dog on the database, information on your missing dog can be found by anyone on the Web.


Be sure to also Share it on our Facebook page:

https://www.facebook.com/lostandfoundgoldenretrievers

Social media excels at spreading the word of your missing dog. It's not so good, though, when someone needs to search through past posts. So be sure to list your dog in both places.

I made this thread into a "Sticky" so it will be located at the top of the Lost and Found Section.
