The Critter Corner Southeast Kansas Lost Animal Posse (SEK Lost Animal Posse) is a group of people interested in becoming more efficient at matching up Lost and Found animals; getting them back to their homes.

You can help this effort by agreeing to be part of the SEK Lost Animal Posse email group. Here's all you have to do:

  • Be willing to receive an email summary notice each week showing the Lost or Found posted to the Critter Corner Classified Animal Lost or Found categories during the previous 7 days.
  • Be aware of Animals Lost and Found in your area as you go about your daily life, listening for conversations and watching for notices that might help match up a lost animal to its home. If you think you have discovered a situation where an animal is the subject of both a lost notice and a found notice, contact the parties directly or email us at crittercorner@sekmarketplace.com and we'll contact the parties.
  • The email summary contains links to the Critter Corner Classified listings of Animals Lost, Found and Needing Homes so you can check them regularly.
  • Check public bulletin boards for Lost and Found notices. If you have some time, jot down phone numbers of people that have Lost or Found animals. Give them a call and ask them to submit a listing to Critter Corner. Be sure to mention that there is no charge for Lost and Found listings.
  • When you hear people speak of Lost or Found situations, encourage them to submit notice to Critter Corner as soon as possible. (Lost and Found listings are always free.)
  • Encourage other people you know to sign up for the SEK Lost Animal Posse. Here, there's definitely strength in numbers. (Imagine the improved odds of Lost Animals returning home if 100 - 200 people in each area town all had visibility of all the Animals Lost and Found on one list.)
  • Tell people you know in other areas of Southeast Kansas about the posse so we can begin to use the same techniques for all cities and towns in our region.
  • Promote and use good identification practices. Collars, tags, id chips or tattoos help make for easy connections between lost animals and their homes.
  • Have a good photograph of your pet so that in the event it does become lost, you'll have an image to go along with your lost pet notice.

Working together, we can increase the number of lost animals successfully returning to their homes, while reducing the number of "unwanted" animals that end up in our shelters and on animal adoption lists.
