Please read. Your submission indicates your willingness to abide by these guidelines. Lost Dogs of Texas (LDOT) Facebook Page is modeled after very successful pages for Illinois and Wisconsin. We solicit reports from families who have lost dogs or Good Sams who have found dogs and post that information so it can be seen by as many people as possible. LDOT is NOT a page that cross posts for dogs in rescue or shelters, dogs in need, or dogs needing foster. We are STRICTLY a page for Lost or Found dogs.
Our policy is not to judge how a dog was lost or the quality of life the dog had. Therefore we do not comment or allow others to comment on, for example, spay/neuter status, chip status, or if the dog was leashed - left in a car, etc. Usually the family is now acutely aware of their mistakes and it is not our job to point them out. We help out everyone who lost a dog, no matter the reason they had the dog - providing it was not for an illegal purpose of course.
We are here to encourage and help people who are looking for their dog and it is solely their decision on how long they look and how they do it.
It is our belief that far fewer dogs are abandoned (dumped is a word we do not use on our page) than is believed. We want to change this mindset because it prevents people from searching for the family when they find a dog. Therefore we do not speculate on whether a dog was abandoned.
We appreciate our volunteers and demand that you be treated with civility. You choose to spend your time with us and we want that to be fun, quality time. Our page does not tolerate unkind, uncivil comments about lost or found dogs and we do not tolerate unkind remarks toward our volunteers. We pride ourselves on running a kind organization.
Thank you for your time and interest in Lost Dogs of Texas. Volunteers are the only reason we are able to do what we do. As of 2020, we had helped over 80,000 lost or found dogs. Whether or not the post you make actually is the one that gets a dog home, you are part of the bigger picture that, when completed, gets all lost dogs home - support from family, friends and caring strangers. THANK YOU for joining the LDOT Team!
