Shelter employee canvass
After talking to the animal control officer, the Kudzu Kids talked to multiple people at the Yoknapatawpha County Humane Society about whether they'd seen an increase in the number of missing dogs or whether more people than usual were stopping in to report lost dogs.
Vanessa said that she hadn't noticed an increase in the number of dogs brought to the shelter, but pointed out that not all missing dogs were found and brought to the shelter. Some were just reunited with their owners.
“When owners come in, they don’t always tell us their dog is missing until after they see the animal. They don’t want to be blamed for letting the dog loose.”
