Do Lost Dogs Usually Get Found?
A study was conducted on lost dogs and cats. 14% of dogs had been lost at some point within the last five years. Of these, 93% reunited with their owners. Most were found after a search around the neighborhood. The second most common reunion method was a result of the dogs coming back on their own.
Apart from the dogs that return on their own, reuniting with yours will likely require effort on your part. DoNotPay will not only make your pet recovery efforts less cumbersome but will also increase its effectiveness.
