Listen to "PET EDU - PATTY GIARRUSSO" on Spreaker.
I thought you might be interested in listening to my interview with Patty. Patty and her team are amazing at reuniting lost and found pets in Manatee and Sarasota counties. If you have a pet or find one in these two counties, you will want to know what you should do. This interview will help!
Patty Giarrusso, Founder and President of Lost Pet Services, Inc. and Facebook.com/groups/LostFoundPets941, created this lost pet service in July 2013 when her two dogs, Jackson Browne and Rocko went missing. She then embarked on a mission. That mission led to the LostFoundPets941 Facebook group which is now the largest, most active lost and found group in the Manatee and Sarasota Counties area covering Sarasota, Bradenton, Palmetto, Parrish, Ellenton, Venice, Northport, Myakka and areas beyond. The group has over 16,000 members and has reunited 1000s of lost pets using social media and relationships with local animal control agencies, veterinarians, rescues and other pet businesses. In February 2017, Lost Pet Services Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit was organized to help further their mission of reuniting lost pets by offering additional services. All services offered are free to the pet community.
Patty, together with her co-Admins Tracy Ohlman, Katrina Cash and Terry Creamer, work around the clock helping people all over the community reunite with their pets. For the ones whose owners aren't found, the group works to find these animals safe, loving homes.
