DogLost LICKS…

Local Independent Community K9 Supporters…This week goes to Gillian Brydon.

Gillian has been a valued member of DogLost for over 4 years…screen name Dogtheftawareness ..  She  helps run many local lost and found sites in the North east always making sure all lost dogs reported to her locally are registered on DogLost’s database…And any that come into DogLost from her area are shared out to local groups to help find dogs…Gillian always keeps us updated when a dog is reunited…working together  increases missing dogs chances of being found…Gillian now has a shiny orange badge next to her name when ever she posts on doglost…

In Gillian’s own words…

Five years ago I joined Facebook. I was tagged into a post for a missing dog in my area. After searching for this dog I became interested in joining pages involving missing and found Animals. I was asked to help admin on a dog theft awareness County Durham  page which I gladly accepted. since then I have three other pages and help admin another missing page. I am also a doglost volunteer and will help search  when I received a postcode alert  & also share these missing pets on my pages. I have two dog theft pages and a ‘every other’  missing animal page which shares any missing pet such as cats, horses, rabbits, ferrets, birds etc. I have recently started a page for dogs looking for new homes, sharing from rescues and stray kennels & help individuals to rehome dogs. We work hand in hand alongside warden, kennels & rescues and of course other admin who run their own pages throughout the UK and doglost.

Gillians new page is to help rehome dogs…do join!

    Gill does an amazing job posting so many missing and found dogs – and follows up her posts too when reunited or unclaimed for found dogs – no easy task with the numbers she posts!

    Gill is a hugely appreciated member of facebook in my opinion. Using social media to reunite pets and family must take a huge amount of work. Seeing the amount of work she does, as a member of some of the pages she runs must take up a lot of her time. She is an absolute selfless star. Huge congratulations to her on this recognition. 🙂

    Well deserved indeed! I often come across Gillian and Dog Theft Awareness as part of my role as admin on the DogLost Northumberland Facebook group. It is reassuring to know that the various groups that Gillian is involved in are working along side our own local groups in our joint efforts to reunite dogs and other pets with their owners

    As well as Northumberland there is also DogLost Durham and DogLost Yorkshire, with DogLost North East Areas as the regional group.
