Nearly 12,000 owners turned to DogLost for help – some 15% more than the previous year. Said founder, Jayne Hayes, “Some of that increase is due to the continued rise in dog theft, but increased awareness of our success has brought more and more people to us.”
Jayne Hayes won the International Fund for Animal Welfare’s Innovation Award this year, and Crufts winner, Jilly, raised more than £17,000 with her Jilly’s Jolly Jaunt.
DogLost got over 1/3rd of a million visits this month, with almost 1.5 million page views. We set a new daily record of just under 19,000 visits yesterday.
Throughout the year, DogLost was forever in the media with press, online and broadcast media recognising the organisation as the authority on lost and stolen dogs.
