The missing pet crisis.... "The search for a missing pet is a step into uncharted territory at a time when
most panicked pet owners are at their most vulnerable. This is not the time for an individual or family to have to sift and
sort through misinformation, superstition, hoax and scam. As investigators, K9 handlers and field agents working with a distraught
public, we have long realized the need for licensing, certifications and accountability. MASDN is a culmination of effort by
a passionate league of professionals tasked with doing just that." ~Private
Investigator Karin TarQwyn
The Missing Animal Scent Dog Network (MASDN) was founded by a group of Private
Investigators, Dog Trainers and K9 handlers working independently to locate and recover missing and lost pets. The group banded
together to create and install Standards of Practice, Case Structure and Procedures as well as a Code of Ethics and Certification
Standards for K9 Handlers and their dogs.
MASDN represents a concerted effort by
professionals dedicated to the missing animals they seek to find and the grieving families who love them.
